There are three recommended ways of setting up a non-interactive authentication
Public-key authentication with an empty passphrase:
Set up public key authentication as instructed in the documentation of the SSH Tectia Client, leaving the key passphrase empty. The following link is to the 6.1. documentation:
Important: An empty passphrase is a potential security threat. So the both the client and server side user account used for the non-interactive job
Unix-to-Unix: host-based authentication
Only when the desired remote host computer is running Unix, and the client is also unix, host-based authentication can be used.
See the Tectia Server documentation, here is a link for 6.1.:
Using the connection broker to remember the key passphrase
Using Certificate authentication
See the Server and client side documentation, here are links for 6.1.:
