multiple sftp environments with public key authentication


We have two SFTP environments we want to connect to CPI by using public key authentication, we are using this guide by Mandy Krimmel to set it up. We have created two key pairs, each with a different alias. Now we are facing two problems:

- The connection test does not recognize the keypairs anymore and fails
-In the integration flow we cannot choose which keypair to use so its fails as well

If we rename the alias of one of the keys back to id_rsa it works for the connection to that particular system.

The question is how to set up two keypairs for two sftp environments: do we need to provide the alias with a particular name?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Bram ,

    As per my understanding , HCI currently allows only one private/public key pair we can't have more then one key pair as of now .And also the key pair name should be either id_rsa or id_dsa.
