Re: [jgit-dev] JGit Doesn't check StrictHostKeyChecking Parameter Value in the .ssh Folder?

Thanks. So it does read the .ssh information, and we can use the configure (host, session) to override the the default session information and provide custom information to the session. So I used the following:

        JschConfigSessionFactory jschConfigSessionFactory = new JschConfigSessionFactory() {

            protected void configure(OpenSshConfig.Host host, Session session) {

                session.setConfig("StrictHostKeyChecking", "no");


Now, a new exception is thrown, not the previous UnknownHostKey exceptoin:

org.eclipse.jgit.api.errors.TransportException: git@<path_to_git_repo_on_remote_server>.git: Auth fail

Any guidance/explanation on what is the issue here and how to resolve it is highly appreciated!
