Note that this behaviour is seen in version 4.8 build 17969, not v4.7.1 as selected below.

I am still working on opening SFTP links in Cyberduck, using an SSH private key to authenticate (I previously reported #8933 which was quickly fixed, thank you!).

Steps to reproduce this issue:

  1. Click on an SFTP link in the browser (Chrome on OS X)
  2. Cyberduck opens, "Login failed" window appears, even though I have a bookmark already set up with the appropriate key
  3. Select use Public Key authentication, choose correct private key file, which is now remembered
  4. Uncheck anonymous login, enter username
  5. Click "Add to keychain"
  6. Click "Login" - the file is successfully downloaded
  7. Repeat step 1 (either the same link or a different file on the same server) - the exact same things happen, so it appears that the authentication details are not added to the keychain, and the bookmark is also ignored.

Let me know if you need any more information.

It will subsequently try to first authenticate as anonymous. You will need to indicate the correct username in the SFTP link using the format sftp://username@hostname to make this work as expected.
