GitHub API Provider Setup

API Provider Setup

To authenticate a GitHub connector instance you must register an app with GitHub. When you authenticate, use the Client ID, Client Secret, and Authorization callback URL as the API Key (oauth.api.key), API Secret (oauth.api.secret), and Callback URL (oauth.callback.url).

In addition, you also need to know the organization and repository that you want to connect to.

If you've already set up an app and just need to know how to find your Client ID and Client Secret, see Locate Credentials for Authentication. If you need to register an app, see Create an Application.

See the latest setup instructions in the GitHub documentation.
