Getting npm ERR! git@github.com: Permission denied (publickey) when using deploy App

I am trying to deploy a React app using the digital ocean tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-deploy-a-react-application-to-digitalocean-app-platform

The tutorial uses the steps Create > Apps but deployment fails due to the following ERR in the log

Hi @SleepingAquamarineCrab,

Check the following line:

2022-02-22T05:57:33.820583459Z npm ERR! git@github.com: Permission denied (publickey).

It seems like you don’t have permission to use the said git repo. You need to add your public key to the repo you are using.
