When you import a key pair, only the public key is saved by Ravello and used when the VM is started.
Note: Key pairs can be imported in Linux/Max format only.
To import a key pair:
1 In the Library page, click Manage Key Pairs. The Key Pairs dialog box is displayed.
2 Click Create a Key Pair. The New Key Pair dialog box is displayed.

4 In the Name field, enter a name for this key pair.
5 In the Public Key box, enter (or copy-paste) an existing public key.
6 Click OK. The imported key pair is listed in the Key Pairs list.
