Allow the account Admin/Owner to manage all SSH keys

Currently the EY dashboard only allows you to manage SSH keys that have been uploaded by yourself and even the account owner can not view/edit/destroy ssh keys from another member. This creates problems most notably when we create a new app/environment and want to, but can not, add everyones SSH keys if we would like to. I think that it would be useful for the account owner to administer _all_ SSH keys within the account.

The ability to "Allow the account Admin/Owner to manage all SSH keys" is a security request for us.  The admin/owner should have the ability to approve/view any access to SSH to ensure that only the proper team members have access to ec2 instance.

Hi Jason and John,

Thanks for the feature request. We have taken this to our Engineering and Security teams to scope out and add to our work plan.

Hi Josh,

I see that this request is still marked as "Planning" has there been any updates from the Engineering and Security teams as to what and when we can expect a solution?

Thanks,

John Banks

Hi John,

This is still planned and was placed on the Roadmap for this year. We have done some initial work on it, but plan to invest more time beginning in Q2. We aim to give more finer control on a handful of user behaviors and allow the account owner the ability to manage these behaviors.

I'll update this as this project begins and give a more clear picture of what this will look like. Thanks!

Hi!

So this is actually already public, we just don't have any docs for it. Check out https://cloud.engineyard.com/keypairs/collaborators , or navigate there from the cloud dashboard by clicking on the "Tools" drop down, and then "Collaborator Access."

I have opened a ticket for our docs team to document this feature, in the mean time please note that only account owners can see this page, and I have already let the developers know they misnamed the tab :) Any comments or feedback is very welcome!

Thanks, Tasha
