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.

It's a must have, add it please

In my honest opinion, MS should be a little more up front in their claims to fully support GIT integration with VS if something as simple as SSH key authentication is not available.

This is a must have to connect Unity Cloud Build system with VSO ! Using login and password in the url to access it is not really an alternative...

Please add this feature

No updates for this in 2 years? What a joke!!

Seems HTTPS for most operations doesn't work with my external corporate proxy. Guessing SSH would. Getting prompted for alternate credentials, but getting "fatal: Authentication failed" on corp network, but success off of it.
It's been years since this issue was first raised - it's sad that you guys continously fail to have it addressed.
Working in Higher Education, we really need the ability to host our own internal git server. VS not being able to accommodate this is a major hardship.
How this is still missing is baffling. GET ON IT!
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.
