Linking Private key in YubiKey with Public Key in GPGKeychain

In the past, I've used this KB Article ( ) to set up my GPG key that resides on my YubiKey.

Now, with the move to, that article seems to be outdated. I don't know what url to enter in --card-edit to link my public key in GPGKeychain with the Private key on my YubiKey.

Does anyone know what the "new" url should be for

    You are right that the knowledge base article is somewhat outdated or rather should be improved. The URL can point to whatever place you like, keyservers were only handy if you don't have your own domain or webspace.

    The equivalent for would be:

    You'll have to replace FINGERPRINT with the fingerprint of your key.

    Hope that helps.
