Cyberduck always prompts me for the password even if I have a public key which openssh uses by default to log in on the server. I shouldn't have to set the public key for every connection manually.

It should read the configuration from the OpenSSH configuration file as described in https://trac.cyberduck.io/wiki/help/en/howto/ssh#OpenSSHConfiguration.

I was on that page before but it is not clear to me what I have to do for Cyberduck to automatically read my ~/.ssh/id_rsa key. Where (and why) do I specify the key in the config?

I have updated the page with additional info. We do not read the id_rsa by default. You have to specify the key explicitly in the configuration file.

This does not work for the quick connect field, also shouldn't be required for the user to set up an IdentityFile.

We have disabled this by default in 4eb231e because of #6388. To enable, set the hidden configuration option ssh.authentication.publickey.default.enable to true.
