Setting up Gerrit (ssh)

  1. Click the Sign In button in the top right corner of the page

    You will be prompted with a regular Basic Authentication window, simply enter your username and password you had set up earlier.

  2. Create your SSH key

    If you don't know how to create your SSH Public/Private Key, we have compiled a list of links for you:

  3. Add your public SSH key to Gerrit

    • Click on your profile in the top right corner and click Settings.
    • On the left hand side, click SSH Keys.
    • Copy-paste the contents of your public SSH key file (e.g. ~/.ssh/ into the text field next to New SSH key and then click on Add new SSH key.

If you work with different computers, for example with a notebook at work and another computer at home you can either copy your private key or create a separate key for the other computer. Luckily Gerrit can handle multiple keys.
