Getting Started

Github Triggers: Webhooks vs. Polling

The Github triggers in Pipedream enable you to get notified immediately via a webhook if you have admin rights on the repo you're watching. Otherwise you can still poll for updates at a regular interval for any other repo where you might not have admin rights.

Example: New or Updated Issue If you are an admin on the repo, this trigger will be configured as a webhook — so any time there is a new or updated issue in the repo, an event will immediately get emitted.

If you do not have admin rights on the repo you're watching, you can configure the Pipedream trigger to poll for updates on a regular interval.

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
