Trying to use SSH Agent & Commits.

Community Member

I have 2 SSH Keys in my 1P install and I have created 3 GPG keys at this point. For some reason I keep getting an error that git failed.

```Git failed with a fatal error.
Git failed with a fatal error.
error: Error: AppError { error: could not authenticate with ssh agent, location: Location { file: "ssh\op-ssh-sign\src\", line: 95, col: 37 } }

fatal: failed to write commit object

When trying to use SSH_AUTH_SOCK=~/.1password/agent.sock git commit -m"test"
I get...
Make sure the SSH key is stored in your Private/Personal vault.

fatal: failed to write commit object

git config user.signingkey returns my key. ssh-add -L just returns Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.

    Hi @DudeThatsErin:

    Are you still running into trouble with this? We'd likely need to take a closer look at this, so continuing the conversation over email would be best.
