Use SSH Keyfile with SFTP for VS Code

Run command:

echo $SSH_AUTH_SOCK

Output should be something like this:

/private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.QbuGHcegZA/Listeners

Now add this to your config:

"agent": "/private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.QbuGHcegZA/Listeners",
"privateKeyPath": "/Users/sebastian/.ssh/id_rsa",
"passphrase": null

Where ‘agent’ should be the output of the command above and the ‘privateKeyPath’ should be the path to your id_rsa.pub.

‘passphrase’ is null or ‘your_password’.
