How to use a ssh key generated by the user

TigerGraph supports a number of standard security configurations that allow management of access to the database and it’s related components.


TigerGraph will generate an ssh credential for the TigerGraph user used on every node in the cluster during the installation process. If you want to specify your own ssh key, you must do so using the non-interactive installation procedure.

Please note that TigerGraph currently only supports using an SSH key in PEM format and not OpenSSH.

You can convert OpenSSH to PEM as follows:

ssh-keygen -p -m PEM -f ~/PATH/TO/YOUR/KEY

You can also use the following command to generate a new PEM key:

ssh-keygen -m PEM -t rsa -b 4096
