Use a private git repo on Azure

To use a private git repo, you'll need to give Meadowrun the name of an Azure secret that contains the private SSH key for the repo you want to use.


We'll assume you have a private git repo at

If you don't already have an SSH key for accessing your repo, you'll need to set one up with your git hosting provider. For example, see GitHub's instructions for adding a deploy key

Get the name of your Meadowrun Key Vault

The Meadowrun Key Vault will be created the first time you use Meadowrun, so if you haven't done so, run a function with Meadowrun. Next, go to the Azure portal, and go to "Key Vaults". You should see a Key Vault named something like "mr724792bd295194e79d5881" in the Meadowrun-rg Resource Group. The actual name will be "mr" followed by the last 22 letters/numbers of your subscription id (Azure Key Vault names need to be globally unique).

Create a secret

Next, create a secret in this Key Vault called my_ssh_key where the contents are the private SSH key for the repo you want to use. This will be a multi-line secret, so you'll need to use the CLI or Powershell to create it.

az keyvault secret set --vault-name "mr724792bd295194e79d5881" --name "my_ssh_key" --file "path/to/secret_key"

Using your secret

Now you can use the following Deployment with run_function or run_map:

import meadowrun


Note that we're using the SSH URL. The equivalent https URL (e.g. will NOT work because we're using an SSH key.
