While most people only use one GitLab.com account, a freelancer or consultant might need to work with repos from multiple accounts. If that freelancer attempts to upload their public SSH key to multiple accounts, they’ll get the following error message from GitLab:
Fingerprint has already been taken. Assuming they don’t want to use password-based authentication over HTTPS as a workaround, how can our friendly freelancer get SSH working?
If your team uses Git and Continuous Integration, chances are good that your workflow could benefit from git greenbase. But first, strap on your VR headset and experience the perils of git pull through the eyes of our seasoned developer, Karen.
