Connecting SSH repositories

Tags: Flow on-prem

Although Flow is designed to integrate with Git repository software like GitHub Cloud and Enterprise, BitBucket Cloud and Server, and GitLab, some users do not choose to use those packages.  In the cases where this is true, Flow allows you to use SSH and HTTPS to connect to your repositories.  Sadly, at this time, we are unable to offer a bulk import tool for repositories of these types, so this process must happen one repository at a time.

  1. To get started, browse to the My Data menu and select Repos.
  2. Go to the Add Repos menu and select Other.
  3. Choose Add via SSH.
  4. You will now be asked to enter a valid SSH clone URL.  An example is shown in the dialog box.  Once you have entered a valid URL, click Generate SSH Key.
  5. Flow will now generate an SSH key for you.  You can click the Copy public key to your clipboard or click Show details to retrieve the key.
  6. Install the key into your repository.  There are several ways to do this, and some of them can be found by clicking How do I do this?.

    Once you have successfully installed the key, check I installed the key and then click Import.

  7. At this point, Flow will begin analyzing your repository.  You can click View Now to continue, or add a new SSH repository.
