I am trying to use JuiceSSH to connect to my Amazon instance with Ubuntu and I am unable to skip the request for password, documentation says I should be using -i in the ssh command but I don't see that option in JuiceSSH

Added screenshot


  • You are searching for the ssh authentication using private key. That seems to be supported by JuiceSSH. Do you have the required private key on your Android device?

This was primarily my own mistake and I am leaving it here only for future visitors who may face the same issue.

I was using a wrong pem file and since the issue was not highlighted as "wrong pem" but as it needed password I was confused.
