How to pair VS 2019 to a Mac with key instead of password?

My mac only allows ssh connection authenticated with key + passphrase, not password. Is there a way to pair a Mac from Windows VS 2019 without using password? I haven't been successful so far.

    We could build iOS apps from the Windows command-line , however we need to login first , when the password gets changed , we need to pair to mac manually again .

    The first time Pair to Mac logs in to a particular Mac build host from either Visual Studio 2019 or the command-line, it sets up SSH keys. With these keys, future logins will not require a username or password.
