Can you please let me know how to "forward SSH_AGENT into it to be
to fetch from internal projects without the need to mount the key
into the container."? I never did that before.
I use the following options within the Docker run command:
  -v $SSH_AUTH_SOCK:/ssh.socket \
  -e SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/ssh.socket \
That's pretty much what I use.

Furthermore, I had to mount the .ssh folder into the container to
make it working (be aware of security risk).
Additionally, you should check that uid, gid of the user in the
container is the same on the host.
I do something similar, my "problem" was that ssh needs the
.ssh/known_hosts file with a matching entry in addition to your
key/agent, but mounting the .ssh folder was not possible for me because
of permissions. Currently, I just created a little script that wraps
"oe-init-build-env" and populates the known_hosts file accordingly.

mkdir -p ~/.ssh

cat <<EOF >> ~/.ssh/known_hosts ssh-ed25519 <base64key>
