Associating an email with your GPG key

Your GPG key must be associated with a GitHub Enterprise Server verified email that matches your committer identity.

If you're using a GPG key that matches your committer identity and your verified email address associated with your account on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, then you can begin signing commits and signing tags.

  1. Abra TerminalTerminalGit Bash.

  2. Use o comando gpg --list-secret-keys --keyid-format=long para listar a forma longa das chaves GPG para as quais você tem uma chave pública e privada. Uma chave privada é necessária para assinar commits ou tags.

    Shell
    $ gpg --list-secret-keys --keyid-format=long

    Observação: algumas instalações de GPG no Linux podem exigir o uso de gpg2 --list-keys --keyid-format LONG para ver uma lista das chaves existentes. Nesse caso, você também precisará configurar o Git para usar gpg2 executando git config --global gpg.program gpg2.

  3. Da lista de chaves GPG, copie a forma longa do ID da chave GPG que você gostaria de usar. Neste exemplo, a ID da chave GPG é 3AA5C34371567BD2:

    Shell
    $ gpg --list-secret-keys --keyid-format=long
    /Users/hubot/.gnupg/secring.gpg
    ------------------------------------
    sec   4096R/3AA5C34371567BD2 2016-03-10 [expires: 2017-03-10]
    uid                          Hubot <hubot@example.com>
    ssb   4096R/42B317FD4BA89E7A 2016-03-10
  4. Enter gpg --edit-key GPG key ID, substituting in the GPG key ID you'd like to use. In the following example, the GPG key ID is 3AA5C34371567BD2:

    $ gpg --edit-key 3AA5C34371567BD2
  5. Enter gpg> adduid to add the user ID details.

    $ gpg> adduid
  6. Follow the prompts to supply your real name, email address, and any comments. You can modify your entries by choosing N, C, or E.

    Real Name: OCTOCAT
    Email address: "octocat@github.com"
    Comment: GITHUB-KEY
    Change (N)ame, (C)omment, (E)mail or (O)kay/(Q)uit?
  7. Enter O to confirm your selections.

  8. Enter your key's passphrase.

  9. Enter gpg> save to save the changes

    $ gpg> save
  10. Enter gpg --armor --export GPG key ID, substituting in the GPG key ID you'd like to use. In the following example, the GPG key ID is 3AA5C34371567BD2:

    $ gpg --armor --export 3AA5C34371567BD2
    # Prints the GPG key, in ASCII armor format
  11. Upload the GPG key by adding it to your GitHub account.
