Juju can add SSH keys to its cache from reliable public sources (currently Launchpad and GitHub), allowing those users SSH access to Juju machines. The user identity supplied is the username on the respective service given by ‘lp:’ or ‘gh:’.

If the user has multiple keys on the service, all the keys will be added. Once the keys are imported, they can be viewed with the juju ssh-keys command, where comments will indicate which ones were imported in this way.

An alternative to this command is the more manual juju add-ssh-key.


Import all public keys associated with user account ‘phamilton’ on the GitHub service:

juju import-ssh-key gh:phamilton

Multiple identities may be specified in a space delimited list:

juju import-ssh-key gh:rheinlein lp:iasmiov gh:hharrison
