How to add SSH key authenticated account for Linux/ UNIX?

SSH keys are used for accessing a Linux/Unix asset without entering a password. SSH keys are more secure than traditional passwords. The private key is also encrypted with a password to hide its contents. You can add an SSH key authenticated account as follows.


  1. Login to the system and select PAM from the product navigator.
  2. Go to Manage → Click on the account icon of the desired LINUX/UNIX asset → Add Account.
  3. In the Add Account form, set Authentication Type → Key Based (the key should be RSA encrypted).
  4. Fill in the details.
  5. Upload your private key in the Key field and enter your Passphrase in the respective section.
  6. Click on Save.
