Using SSH Key w/passphase with HPOO 10.22

I'm attempting to use a key with passphrase for SSH authentication in an HPOO 10.22 flow.  Key authentication works fine without a passphrase but I have not been able to get it working with a passphrase.  From what I have read the passphrase is specified as the password variable.  I have tried both defining it as a constant and typing it in as "Prompt User".  In both cases I receive  'The keyFilePath is invalid".  I confirmed the path is correct in the flow and also that the key functions properly when used to PuTTY.  Anyone had success using a passphase protected key?  Thanks!

Yes, I used the passpharse with the SSH operation in OO 10.22.  Make sure the Obfuscated check box is NOT checked.  I believe it fails if the passphrase is obfuscated.

When I use my passphrase protected private key, I use pagent to remember it.

I run putty on Windows and it sets it up for Linux/Unix.
