SSH Key can be used to login to your server without password. Each user inside server can have multiple ssh key attached to them. For example if you want your friend, Joe to be able to login to your server under username runcloud, just add Joe’s SSH public key to the server. After that, Joe can login to your server without any password.
Generating SSH Key
If you do not have any SSH key pair inside your computer, just issue
ssh-keygen -t RSA inside terminal (Linux & MacOS).
Then you cat get the SSH public key by issuing
cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub which you can register inside RunCloud.

|Label||The label for SSH key for you to recognize this key belong to whom|
|User||The user inside your server that you want the ssh key to authenticated to|
|Public Key||The SSH public key get from
After you have save the key, RunCloud will push the key to the server. And now you can login to your server without password.
