Add support for SSH keys as alternate authentication method in TFS Online
A common way to authenticate clients in a Git setup is to use SSH keys. It would be nice to have that method on TFS Online as well.
Thanks for the suggestion – we appreciate the input! We’re currently investigating what it would take for us to enable SHH support for Git repos on TFS/VSO.
TFS Program Manager
Nothing against GitHub, but our organization needs to keep our private git repository in-house. We host this on a Linux server and would love the ability to use SSH to handle check-ins, etc. Seems like this would be pretty easy for Microsoft to integrate into the Visual Studio product - enter server name, port, and credential information, done!)
Moreover, I think Deployment Keys are necessary.
When we can expect the SSH Support for git repos for TFS?

Would really like to use VSO Git but because my accounts all have 2-factor SSH is the best option. I realize VSO's "Alternate credentials" is a work around but not ideal for my situation.
Still not in VS 2015 RC - should be a pretty easy addition to make.

"Until this is sorted - Visual Studio Online / git is not an option."
There are credential caches that leverage the credential manager on Windows Machines.
But, Would totally love this as an option over "Alternate credentials" on vso

+3 Please don't implement Git support halfway. Please support the SSH keys.
+3. Absolutely essential to use Git via SSH, not only from developer workstations, but also from build machines, repository hooks and so forth.

Okay you support uploading a PK for Azure Management, (and for ssh on Linux VMs) let's put the same thing on VSO Git
