Do you have the

aaa authentication ssh console <AD> LOCAL

set?

Yes, but I am not trying to logon with an AD account. I created a local user on the ASA and just simply want to ssh into the ASA using that local account.

I understand, the authentication would try AD first and then the local database.

Then how do I get it to login?

Can you share your AAA & LOCAL config?

Also, is your ssh command configured to allow ssh from the particular host?

ssh <Inside host IP> <inside host netmask> inside

Sometimes, I've found that deleting that userid and then recreating it, helps.

I think that since the AD is always available, you would have difficulty having the Local database step up to authenticate. It's supposed to be used for the times when AD is inaccessible and you need to get into your device.

ssh is allowed from the host, I have deleted and recreated the username as well. Thanks.
