Capistrano error : could not connect to ssh-agent


I’m using Bedrock with Capistrano deploys.
When I use command bundle exec cap staging deploy:check I get an authentication error :

cap aborted!
SSHKit::Runner::ExecuteError: Exception while executing as deploy@SERVER_IP: Authentication failed for user deploy@SERVER_IP

Capistrano could not connect to ssh-agent on my server.

But I can log in on my server via SSH like this ssh deploy@SERVER_IP without password. I dit all the instructions in Capistrano Authentication & Authorisation Docs page, so I can use command like me@localhost $ ssh ‘hostname; uptime’.

If I enter command ssh -A deploy@SERVER_IP 'env | grep SSH_AUTH_SOCK' I get result


Here is my deploy.rb file :

set :application, 'dyxovka-special'
set :repo_url, ''
set :branch, :master
set :tmp_dir, '~/tmp'
set :log_level, :info
set :linked_files, fetch(:linked_files, []).push('.env')
set :linked_dirs, fetch(:linked_dirs, []).push('web/app/uploads')

Here is my staging.rb file :

set :stage, :staging
set :deploy_to, -> { "/var/www/vhosts/project/dev" }
server 'SERVER_IP', user: 'deploy', roles: %w{web app}
set :ssh_options, {
  user: 'deploy',
  keys: %w('/c/Users/alexander/.ssh/id_rsa'),
  forward_agent: true,
  auth_methods: %w(publickey),
  verbose: :debug
fetch(:default_env).merge!(wp_env: :staging)

Apache’s agent forwarding agent instruction is enabled in sshd_config file : AllowAgentForwarding yes

What should do with my config files to make my deploy work?

Windows 8.1
Ruby 2.2.0
Capistrano 3.2.1
Git Bash
