SSH is a network protocol for secure data communication, different command executions, or remote shell services.

It’s also used for different security services between two networked computers connected via a secure channel over an insecure network.

Drag and drop SSH inside a workflow where a green field appears. Doing so makes it a part of the workflow.


  1. Fill in the fields for the SSH block.

  • authKey - the authentication key that provides the base for a generic API authentication scheme, which you can extend if necessary.

  • Command - the command you’d like the block to execute.

2. Click More to expand the block with six advanced, optional settings.

  • Host - the name of the host.

  • Port - the specific number of the host making its services available.

  • Username - the username of the user.

  • Password - the password of the user.

  • OpenSSH Key - a unique SSH key you should have in advance.

  • Timeout - the time (in seconds) after which the service will expire.

3. If you run the workflow, a relevant response will be shown at the bottom of the Editor.

To disable an SSH block without deleting it, use the slider on the left of its name.
