Step 2: Create an SSH-Key via the Horizon(Dashboard)

Start

To continue our guide, we will need a SSH keypair, if you already have keypair and you know how to use it, you can skip this step and go directly to step 3.

Installation

There are many ways to generate our SSH keypair, we will create a keypair manually later but we will create it from the dashboard in this step.
To create the SSH keypair, we need to go to Compute -> Key Pairs and click Create Key Pair.

A dialog will appear where we can name the key, in this example we will use BeispielKey and click Create Keypair.

Conclusion

We’ve now created our SSH keypair and are ready for the rest of the tutorial!
