When you install Jenkins from the repos one problem is configure ssh keys for jenkins user, the first thing to configure ssh keys was su jenkins and run ssh keygen but it failed because i can’t log with Jenkins user.

i open a terminal as root on server machine as root and start writing:

vim /etc/passwd

changing jenkins line

jenkins:x:492:486:Jenkins Continuous Build server:/var/lib/jenkins:/bin/false

for

jenkins:x:492:486:Jenkins Continuous Build server:/var/lib/jenkins:/bin/bash

after changuing this line you can do

su jenkins

cd

ssh-keygen

cat .ssh/id_rsa.pub

now you have the key for your jenkins user and it can pull from your repos

for more security edit again /etc/passwd and pul false in jenkins shell

jenkins:x:492:486:Jenkins Continuous Build server:/var/lib/jenkins:/bin/false
