Generate a deploy key per repo in the Git extension
Currently, the Git extension only generates one deploy key per Plesk user (according to @PleskHelps on Twitter). Unfortunately, GitHub doesn't allow a deploy key to be used more than one time across ALL repos, meaning every single GitHub repo requires a unique deploy key. As a result, I can clone only one of the 40 some repos I would like to on my Plesk installation.
I would like to suggest the option to have a unique deploy key generated for every single repo you want to clone. That would make the Git extension infinitely more useful for me and many others, especially when using Github as the upstream master for them.
This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features. Thanks in advance!
Please fix this BUG!! This is very important to me because I have this problem since I am using Plesk.
Any update?? ...

This is idiotic, for over more than 2 years still no solution and again had this problem at my office. Plesk do something about it because this is a design mistake and not a uservoice request.

this is pathetic... with cpanel and plesk being the same company now we are running out option to break magical 1990s deployment model. 3 years ...
How is this going? I recently hit this problem after working some time to finetuning CI for the first subdomain and realize it wouldn't work in any subsequent subdomains that pulls on diferent repositories of the same git server because the key is allways the same.
The lack of this feature is a real problem and a full stopper if you plan to use git to manage deployments in a Plesk environment, something that should be fairly common nowadays.

It's all lovely learning about the git extension for the first time, then as soon as you trust that it's a good way to deploy - you are screwed by this limitation. As I use github exclusively, I'm limited to just using this extension once per server!?!
+1 for this feature, otherwise working with Plesk and Github in a professional way (e.g. website deployment via git) is not possible.
I'm waiting for this. I use bitbucket & github as workaround, but we need an oficial solution from Plesk ASAP.
see this channel , if you need some clue for the setting ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dauJEeMLTjg )

Still waiting for this???

Would be nice to have one SSH key per sub domain instead of subscription.
Dave Gerber commented
Is this still a thing? I'm currently facing issues with the user authentication...

Dear Plesk, with the evolution of CD CI you really should consider allowing us to add credentials either that or create a vault system to all secrets. That said, we will need to find alternatives otherwise, please prioritize this.

Also facing this issue, very frustrating.
Please solve this. It's a must!
Erik Kraijenoord commented
This should have been fixed on request, it's not a uservoice, it's a design mistake. When you have a 30 domains license you should move to bitbucket because Plesk thinks it's a uservoice. It's not, this should have been fixed a long time ago...
A work around is to transfer to bit bucket. You can deploy to different website root folders with a single SSH key.

This would really be helpful. Like in - I really need this.

I am sure others have come across this issue but not found this post to be able to vote for this functionality. I only came across it by chance. An ETA would be welcome. I am trying to use the GIT feature to deploy multiple developments to a development server (same server box different GIT repos).
Bramus Van Damme commented
I asked on Twitter for this.
Official reply (even though this feature is totally useless in its current form): “Our Git extension is currently on hold for development. Once the development is resumed and the feature gets enough votes it will be considered for development.” — https://twitter.com/PleskHelps/status/1100020741951627266
So don't get your hopes up.
