To use a public key generated for your development machine, the key must be uploaded through the dashboard.

To add an SSH key to Engine Yard Cloud

  1. Locate and copy the public key on your local machine. The default location of this file is:

  2. In your Dashboard, click on the Tools drop-down.
  3. Click SSH Public Keys.
  4. Click Add a new SSH public key.
  5. Enter a name for the key.
  6. Paste the key (from Step 1) into the Public Key field.
  7. Click Add Key.

    You receive a confirmation that your SSH public key has been created and added to your Engine Yard account.

Next step
