This article describes how to configure Gitblit with Talend Administration Center using SSH authentication.

This was tested on the following architecture:

  • Talend Administration Center installed on Windows
  • Git installed on a Linux box

Prerequisite: You have installed and configured Git as explained in Talend Installation Guide .

  1. Use the following command to add the public key in the authorized_keys file located in your .ssh folder:

    cat id_rsa.pub >> authorized_keys
  2. Set the permission using the following command:

    chmod 600 id_rsa.pub
  3. Download Gitblit from http://gitblit.com
  4. Install Tomcat and deploy the Gitblit war file.
  5. Use the following command to add the git server as known_hosts:

    ssh -l <git_username> -p 29418 <git_server>.

    Run the same command on the server hosting Talend Administration Center as well to create the known_hosts file.

  6. Open Gitblit with the following address: https://servernName:port/<war_file_name>
