Unable to add public key for SSH

Issue #11143 resolved
will chen created an issue

I'm unable to add my public key to bitbucket via the website.

Steps to reproduce:

1 Went into ssh-keys
2 Click the add and the "Add SSH key" window pops up.
3 Copied key with "cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | pbcopy"
4 Named the key and pasted it into "Key*" and clicked the "Add key" button.

"Invalid SSH key." message appears and the following error appears in the javascript console:

    In case it will help someone in the future.. I was getting the "Invalid SSH key" message using PHP and CURL. Turns out when you pass an array to..

    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $postValuesArray); 

    ...curl will automatically urlencode() those values. So make sure you're not encoding those values twice or BB will reject it.
    (Thanks to the Bitbucket team for helping me troubleshoot this)
