Signing up with SSH

If your repository lives in Beanstalk or your own source control system, you can sign up with buddybuild using SSH. Buddybuild automatically generates an SSH key for you to install into your source control system. Buddybuild uses this key to clone your repository.


Buddybuild has first-class integrations with the following repo providers:

Buddybuild’s integrations provide the following features:

  • Commit status updates

  • Support for pull request workflows

  • Integration with issue tracking

  • Selective builds

  • Federated login

  • Automated access management

  • Ability to select from available repositories

If you choose to use SSH to connect to your repo, buddybuild can only access your repository’s file content, and the features noted above do not work.
