How to add SSH key to the GitHub user

To make possible adding your GitHub repository to the DueCQ project it’s necessary to add SSH key to your GitHub account.

Below you will find a detailed guide on how to do this.

Go to the “SSH and GPG keys” page:

Click “New SSH key” button:

Paste DueCQ SSH key from clipboard to the “Key” field, add SSH key name to the “Title” field and click “Add SSH key” button:

Go to the GitHub repository page and click “Clone or download” button:

Choose “Use SSH” option and click “Copy” button to copy repository link to the clipboard:

Go back to the “Add repository” DueCQ page, paste repository link from clipboard to the “What is the repository URL and a Branch to scan?” field, add branch name to the “Branch” field and click “Add” button:
