When attempting to ingress Terraform modules via
Git over SSH a
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository. is displayed and the run fails.
This is an issue with the SSH key.
PEM-encoded keys are required in Terraform Cloud and Terraform Enteprise. Check the SSH key headers to verify that it is PEM-encoded.

If the key has a header of
-----"BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY"----- then a PEM-encoded key will need to be generated instead.
The exact command to create a PEM-encoded SSH keypair depends on the operating system but will be similar to:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -m PEM -f "/Users/<NAME>/.ssh/service_terraform" -C "service_terraform_cloud".
This creates a
service_terraform file with the private key, and a
service_terraform.pub file with the public key.
