SSH Keys Integration (Deprecated)

Deprecation Note

This integration has been deprecated. A new integration called sshKey of type generic has been introduced which can be used instead.

If you have any existing SSH Key account integrations of type hub, you can continue to use them.


SSH Key Integration is used to connect Shippable DevOps Assembly Lines platform to VMs that allow SSH based auth. This is typically used to SSH in and then run activities on the machine. Tools like Terraform and Ansible use this to execute scripts on a machine.

Adding account integration

Since this integration has been deprecated, you cannot create new account integrations for it, but can only edit/delete the exisiting ssh-key integrations. You can use the sshKey integration instead which will work exactly the same way as the deprecated ssh-key integration.

Usage in CI

Usage in Assembly Lines

The SSH key integration can be used in the following resources:

Default Environment Variables

When you create a resource with this integration, and use it as an IN or OUT for a runSh or runCI job, a set of environment variables is automatically made available that you can use in your scripts.

<NAME> is the the friendly name of the resource with all letters capitalized and all characters that are not letters, numbers or underscores removed. For example, my-key-1 will be converted to MYKEY1, and my_key_1 will be converted to MY_KEY_1.

Environment variable Description
<NAME>_INTEGRATION_NAME Name supplied in the integration
<NAME>_INTEGRATION_PUBLICKEY Public Key supplied in the integration
<NAME>_INTEGRATION_PRIVATEKEY Private Key supplied in the integration
<NAME>_INTEGRATION_PUBLIC_KEY_PATH Path of a file containing the public key supplied in the integration
<NAME>_INTEGRATION_PRIVATE_KEY_PATH Path of a file containing the private key supplied in the integration

Shippable Utility Functions

To make it easy to use these environment variables, the platform provides a command line utility that can be used to work with these values.

How to use these utility functions is documented here.
