How do you configure visual studio 2019 to not ask for a passphrase every time you do a git action via ssh?

It gets to the point of having to enter the password 2-4 times in the same command through the GUI. (when syncing for instance)

I know that ssh-agent is working fine since I don't have the same problem when I use the command line or sourcetree.

On a related note, cloning submodules recursively doesn't work from within the Visual Studio IDE - one has to open a command prompt or git-bash to make it work.
