Issue #7323 invalid

Incorrect "Someone has already registered this as a deploy key" message.

created an issue

I had an SSH key I added mistakenly as a deployment key (I didn't realize that that would be read-only). So I fixed that by removing it from the list of deployment keys, but now when I try to add that key to my account, I get the error "Someone has already registered this as a deploy key."

How can I clear this out so it will let me add the key?

    I think I know what happened. That same key was being used as a deploy key by someone else on another project. My mistake.

    I just generated a new key to use instead. I don't think this is a bug.

    Once you remove your SSH key as a deployment key, it should be available to use as a global SSH key. Can you make sure you don't have that key set up on any other repository? If you don't have that key in use anywhere and it's still not working, let us know and we'll investigate further!

    Michael Frauenholtz I already removed the deployment key and still I'm getting the Someone has already registered this as a deploy key. I'm the only one using this account. Can you help me with this, please? I've been dealing with this since yesterday. I can't generate a new key because I'm using Cloud9 and I think it's not possible. Please! Thanks.

    Wasted 15 minutes trying to remove the deploy key so I could use as a regular key and it still complains it's in use. I saw in another thread that if it's attached to a deleted repo you are SOL.

    Atlassian you have some of the worst developers on the planet. You don't fix ANYTHING your users complain about. We've been waiting for 7 years for a cancel confirmation dialog on JIRA and that's still not fixed. Unbelievable.

    I know is silly but when it happen to me was because I was doing commit and push without git init. That's why it kept telling Someone has already registered that SSH key.
