I can't configure the git repository url in a way, that Jenkins could access it.

under "Project > Configure > Source Code Management" I set the Repository URL to "git@store:repositories/testproject.git"

I get this error:

Failed to connect to repository : Command "/usr/bin/git -c core.askpass=true ls-remote -h git@store:repositories/testproject.git HEAD" returned status code 128:
stdout: 
stderr: Permission denied, please try again. 
Permission denied, please try again. 
Permission denied (publickey,password). 
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

the access with that URL works on a shell:

jenkins@dilbert:~$ /usr/bin/git -c core.askpass=true ls-remote -h git@store:repositories/testproject.git
git@store's password: 
4fd35a4f528e2f2921a52cfd03918b7cbde3d253    refs/heads/master

I am asked for a password and it works.

I associated the same password to credentials in Jenkins to "git/" and I also tried "git@store/". None worked.

Pleas note, that this is not about github, but about a local git repository.

update:

adding the pub key from the jenkins master to the build slave, helped to get the configuration working:

ssh-copy-id jenkins@dilbert

now the builds are failing:

store is the jenkins master, dilbert is the build slave. ssh from master to slave works.

jenkins@store:~$ ssh dilbert uptime
 16:06:21 up 3 days, 18:53, 13 users,  load average: 0,31, 0,38, 0,50

any ideas how to debug this?

authentication works via ssh. have you added the public ssh-key of the jenkins user to the git-user on your git-server?

let me know if you need instructions on how to set up ssh-authentication and i'll edit this post here.

/EDIT:

glad you got it running. i looked on the official jenkins website for a detailed manual on the ssh part of the configuration, but i couldn't find any.

so here's a quick overview - let me know if this is what you need.

  1. jenkins slave (the building machine) connects to the git-server (jenkins master)
  2. building machine runs as jenkins user (e.g. jenkins@dilbert:~$ )
  3. git-server runs as git user (e.g. git@store:~$ )
  4. jenkins@dilbert public key needs to be placed in git@store authorized_keys
  5. run jenkins@dilbert:~/.ssh$ ssh-copy-id git@store to copy jenkins@dilbert ssh public key to the git server
  • could you please explain which users ssh-key add to where? – Jörg Beyer Mar 22 '15 at 14:36
  • the jenkins user should have his pub-key stored in <jenkins user home dir>/.ssh/id_rsa.pub this one needs to be added to <git user home dir>/.ssh/authorized_keys – kindaleek Mar 22 '15 at 14:38
  • doing "jenkins@store:~/.ssh$ ssh-copy-id git@store" get's jenkins to accept the configuration (that is an improvement), but a build on a remote jenkins slave fails. any idea? – Jörg Beyer Mar 22 '15 at 14:49
  • good to read. unfortunately, my experience with git ends pretty much there... but i remember a similar problem at work. i might be mistaken now, but you have to work as a user (e.g. Joerg Beyer) on the git-platform, right? please verify the permission there (you can change the users permissions in the web interface for each group they belong to). try to set it to developer for testing /EDIT: you wrote remote jenkins slave - if it uses a different key pair, you need to add the public key to the git's authorized_keys once again – kindaleek Mar 22 '15 at 14:59
  • not sure. I updated the question. What ssh key do I need to add where? – Jörg Beyer Mar 22 '15 at 15:12
