Difficult to add new host only with public key authentication
1) Add a new host with +
2) Enter host and the username
3) Leave password empty
4) Press the key icon
5) Select key (by the way, my generated key is show twice)
6) Klick "Save"
7) Dismiss the dialog
8) Pick "Edit" and select your newly created host
9) Notice that the key selection IS NOT saved
It works from the edit screen though.
For public-key only authentication, please do not make password field mandatory as described in https://serverauditor.uservoice.com/forums/215251-general/suggestions/4260603-allow-blank-passwords
This should have been fixed long time ago.
Please let us know if you still face any issues with it.

This appears to still be a problem. Is there a way to authenticate using a public key without being promoted for a password?

Did you fix this?
Thank you for using Serverauditor

Please remove the password requirement for public key connections.
