  • When I create Multibranch Pipeline and add a git source (which requires a private key to authenticate) branch indexing doesn't work and throws following exception: {code} java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot open session, connection is not authenticated. at com.trilead.ssh2.Connection.openSession(Connection.java:1127) at org.jenkinsci.plugins.gitclient.trilead.TrileadSession.exec(TrileadSession.java:32) at org.eclipse.jgit.transport.TransportGitSsh$SshFetchConnection.<init>(TransportGitSsh.java:262) at org.eclipse.jgit.transport.TransportGitSsh.openFetch(TransportGitSsh.java:161) at org.eclipse.jgit.transport.FetchProcess.executeImp(FetchProcess.java:136) at org.eclipse.jgit.transport.FetchProcess.execute(FetchProcess.java:122) at org.eclipse.jgit.transport.Transport.fetch(Transport.java:1138) at org.eclipse.jgit.api.FetchCommand.call(FetchCommand.java:130) at org.jenkinsci.plugins.gitclient.JGitAPIImpl.fetch(JGitAPIImpl.java:672) at jenkins.plugins.git.AbstractGitSCMSource.retrieve(AbstractGitSCMSource.java:171) at jenkins.scm.api.SCMSource.fetch(SCMSource.java:146) at jenkins.branch.MultiBranchProject.computeChildren(MultiBranchProject.java:296) at com.cloudbees.hudson.plugins.folder.computed.ComputedFolder.updateChildren(ComputedFolder.java:151) at com.cloudbees.hudson.plugins.folder.computed.FolderComputation.run(FolderComputation.java:110) at hudson.model.ResourceController.execute(ResourceController.java:98) at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:410) {code} It looks like jgit is used by default, but I don't have it in "Manage Jenkins" I have only command line git, which should be used.

If I specify a private key inside the "credentials" (i.e use private key from jenkins-master home), same error occurs. it seems the branch indexing simply ignores every credential provider or standard ssh/git behaviour.
