Unable to Authenticate

I am trying to log in using powershell script.
Below is what I am using

$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
Protocol = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
HostName = ""
UserName = "username"
Password = '' -- i do not have a password hence keeping it blank
SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 2048 xx:xx:xx:....."

as mentioned above I do not have the password and so keeping it blank. in my log I get the following message
. 2018-01-23 15:41:05.171 Prompt (keyboard interactive, "SSH server authentication", "Using keyboard-interactive authentication.", "username's Password: ")
. 2018-01-23 15:41:05.171 Disconnected: Unable to authenticate

When I log in from the UI I do not provide a password. Just username and the key.

can you please help and let me know what am I missing
