Eclipse Che Get SSH Workspace Public Key

If you are working with a source code versioning system such as github.com or Gitlab you may need to create a private and public keypair in order to clone your repositories within your workspaces.

To achieve this you may use the following command substituting the [CONTAINER ID] for your Eclipse Che workspace instance ID.

First within the Terminal pane of your workspace generate a keypair if one doesn’t already exists using the ‘ssh-keygen’ command.

Once the keypair is created run this command from your docker host.

`$ docker exec [CONTAINER ID] cat /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa.pub`
