Authentication

GitHub uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your GitHub account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into GitHub and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any GitHub API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

repoadmin:orgadmin:public_keyadmin:org_hookgistprojectnotificationsuserwrite:discussionwrite:packagesread:packagesadmin:repo_hook
OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://github.com/login/oauth/authorize?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&state={{oauth.state}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}&login=
