Generate a deploy key for private submodules on Netlify now in the UI

We’re excited to announce we’ve just released a new feature allowing you to generate a deploy key for your site.

A deploy key is needed if your site repo includes private submodules. Until now, a key could only be created by requesting it from our Support team but, to improve this experience, we’ve added a section in a site’s settings to allow you to generate one yourself.

To access this feature, log into the app, navigate to a site, select the Settings tab, click on the Build & Deploy section and scroll down to Deploy key.
Click on the Generate public key button to create a new public deploy key. You can then copy & paste it in your git provider.

Check out the docs to learn more, and comment below if you have further questions.
