Typically there are two ways to achieve this: a) Usning unencrypted SSH keys to make the SSH client used by Git to not ask the password. b) Using certain instrumentation such as sshpass  to make the SSH client ask the password but accept it in a non-interactive manner. c) Using the ~/.netrc file read by the libcURL library which is used by Git when accessing repositories using the HTTP/HTTPS protocols to read the authentication parameters. Which way to deploy, depends on what protocol you intend to use to access the repos, and what protocol Bitbucket servers actually support. Note that in the cases (a) and (c) you store the password as plain text (in the former case the SSH key file is itself "the password", and in the latter, the password is stored in the file in clear text), so you have as tight permissions on them as possible. In the case (b) you're assumed to script Git invocations so that they receive the password, and this means that password is, again, should be stored somewhere (right in the text of the script or read by it from somewhere), and so the same precautions must be applied. 1. http://sourceforge.net/projects/sshpass -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
