Step 1: Create a GitHub Personal Access Token
In GitHub, click your profile photo, then click Settings.
In the left sidebar, select Developer settings.
Click Personal access tokens > Generate new token.
Name your token (for example, ConductorOne Integration). Optionally, add a token expiration date.
Select the following Scopes:
- repo - select all
- admin:org - select all if using ConductorOne for GitHub provisioning (see the note below), or read::org otherwise
- user - select all
Important: The write::org scope is used by ConductorOne when automatically provisioning and deprovisioning GitHub access on your behalf. If you do not want ConductorOne to perform these tasks for you, do not give your token this scope.
- Click Generate token. Copy and save the new token. We’ll use it in Step 3.
If you use SAML SSO, you must authorize the PAT using these instructions.
Step 2: Locate your GitHub organization name
In GitHub, click your profile photo, then click Organizations.
Make a note of your Organization name. We’ll use it in Step 3.
Step 3: Add your GitHub credentials to ConductorOne
- In ConductorOne, click Integrations > GitHub.
- If this is your first GitHub integration, the integration form opens automatically. Otherwise, click Add Connector.
- In the Organization field, enter the name of your GitHub organization.
- Paste the token you generated in Step 1 into the Personal Access Token field.
- Click Next.
- A new GitHub page opens with your saved credentials.
That’s it! Your GitHub instance is now integrated with ConductorOne.
