Create and add your SSH key pair
It's best practice to use Git over SSH instead of Git over HTTP. In order to use SSH, you need to:
- Create an SSH key pair
- Add your SSH public key to GitLab
Creating your SSH key pair
Adding your SSH public key to GitLab
To add the SSH public key to GitLab, see Adding an SSH key to your GitLab account.
NOTE: Once you add a key, you can't edit it. If it did not paste properly, it will not work, and you need to remove the key from GitLab and try adding it again.
