Configuring SFTP connection: Invalid SSH private key provided

I am trying to configure a new SFTP connection to use within a flow. I tried to use both RSA formatted & Putty formatted Private Keys, but both gives me:

Invalid SSH private key provided. clientRequestId: 33552901-d613-48ed-9a82-df7e0cb696a5

Invalid SSH private key provided. clientRequestId: 236c1e47-20c1-419a-a899-05410fe1f717


I can connect to the SFTP server with both keys when I use FTP client like PuttyFTP, FileZilla, etc.

Hi @hig_as,


Please make sure that the private key you paste into the Flow interface must be a PuTTY Private Key File (.ppk).

Besides, please check this blog to see if it helps:

You could try to reconfigure the new connection and see if issue still exist.
