How to automatically pull private github repo on a droplet after creation?

I try to use cloud-config for this, but my keys seems to be ignored… I’ve also tried to put keys beforehand, but failed to add it with sshadd command. This basic task should be easy, right?


I use the following cloud-config in user-data when creating droplet:


  rsa_private: |
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

  rsa_public: ssh-rsa ...== ***

  - git clone***.git
  - cd ~/RepoDir
  - .

Hello, @maratal

When you say that you’ve tried to add the keys with the sshadd command but it failed to add them, what was the exact error? You should be able to copy your keys manually as well.

Let me know how it goes.
