Add an SSH Public Key

You can add Secure Shell (SSH) public keys to an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance.

You might need to add a new SSH public key to a service instance if the SSH private key that you use to access the service instance becomes lost or corrupted. Or, you might need to comply with your organization’s security policies or regulations.

  1. Access your service console.
  2. Beside the service instance to which you want to add a new SSH public key, click Manage this instance Menu icon, and then select Add SSH Access.
    The dialog box displays the value of the most recently added public key.
  3. Specify the new public key, by completing one of the following:
    • Select Upload a new SSH Public Key value from file and then use your browser to upload a public key file from your local computer.
    • Select Key Value. Delete the previous public key value from the input field and then enter or paste the new value. Be sure not to include other characters that aren’t part of the key, such as spaces.
  4. Click Add New Key.
