Subject Re: how can we get private SSH key
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 14:01:26 GMT
Which version do you use? Have you tried the listSSHKeyPairs?   Do you
mean the bug is CS-12667?

In CS3.0, the createSSHKeyPair and listSSHKeyPairs have the same
response value. If the listSSHKeyPairs does not return privatekey or
hidden by design, I think you are right that the only way to get
privatekey is via api: createSSHKeyPair.

Here is a reference [1] for sshkeypair deep dive, hope can help a little.

good et private key is hidden. So my question : Is there a way to get this ssh private key
from the API ? Or the only moment we have it is when it is created ?
