Connecting GIT repository using SSH keys

It is possible to connect to GIT repository using a passwordless service-user ssh key instead of login/password pair.

RevDeBug recordings are overlayed on source code fetched directly from GIT repository.

Repository credentials using login and password and HTTP/HTTPS transport for projects can be set up inside Settings > Repository Credentials.

When SSH transport is required, the following steps are needed:

  • Private password less SSH key for a service user, preferably read-only, needs to be uploaded into /var/revdebug/git-ssh-key-dir/ folder on the RevDeBug Server (location can differ depending on REVDEBUG_VOLUME_GIT_SSH_KEYS server configuration setting).

  • Repository address in Settings > Repository Credentials, have to be set in format similar to: [email protected]:revdebug/python/rdbcpython.git

  • Login and Password fields are to remain empty.
