Key is not LONG enough



Key is not long enough. Bitbucket requires RSA keys be at least 2048 bits.

How do you propose to solve this problem?


On second thought, how can I regenerate the global keys?


The global key available in your settings should be 2048 bits long, can you run the following in one of your workspaces to confirm (the first 4 digits of the output are the bit strength):

ssh-keygen -l -f ~/.ssh/

An explanation of this command can be found here:

The SSH key should be 2048 bits, and is used by SSH workspaces, and I believe with GitHub and Bitbucket, so I’m not sure why it wouldn’t work. Can you post a screenshot of the error you’re encountering on Bitbucket?


Older keys of ours may have been generated at less than 2048 bits. Send an email to from the email address tied to your account and we can regenerate these for you if you’d like.


Thanks, I will be pinging them it is 1024 long.
