The '#' needs to be replaced with '%23' when entering it in the HTTPs credentials.

For example: "pass#ord" should be entered as "pass%23ord"

The SSH password should be entered as-is with the '#' (i.e. "pass#ord")

Ok, so just to be clear then, in my environement where I discovered this, we would create two credential sets instead of one and break out HTTPS and SSH into two sets? The HTTPS set would have %23 in place of the # and the SSH one would just be normal as you said?
