GitHub Overview

The GitHub API is a powerful gateway to interaction with GitHub's vast web of data and services, offering a suite of endpoints to manipulate and retrieve information on repositories, pull requests, issues, and more. Harnessing this API on Pipedream, you can orchestrate automated workflows that respond to events in real-time, manage repository data, streamline collaborative processes, and connect GitHub with other services for a more integrated development lifecycle.

Action Code

import { ConfigurationError } from "@pipedream/platform";
import github from "../../github.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "github-create-branch",
  name: "Create Branch",
  description: "Create a new branch in a Github repo. [See docs here](https://docs.github.com/en/rest/git/refs?apiVersion=2022-11-28#create-a-reference)",
  version: "0.0.9",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    github,
    repoFullname: {
      propDefinition: [
        github,
        "repoFullname",
      ],
    },
    branchName: {
      label: "Branch Name",
      description: "The name of the new branch that will be crated",
      type: "string",
    },
    branchSha: {
      label: "Source Branch",
      description: "The source branch that will be used to create the new branch",
      propDefinition: [
        github,
        "branch",
        (c) => ({
          repoFullname: c.repoFullname,
        }),
      ],
      optional: true,
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    if (this.branchSha) {
      this.branchSha = this.branchSha.split("/")[0];
    } else {
      const branches = await this.github.getBranches({
        repoFullname: this.repoFullname,
      });

      const masterBranch = branches.filter((branch) => branch.name === "master" || branch.name === "main");

      if (masterBranch.length) this.branchSha = masterBranch[0].commit.sha;
    }

    if (!this.branchSha) {
      throw new ConfigurationError("Is required to select one source branch");
    }

    const response = await this.github.createBranch({
      repoFullname: this.repoFullname,
      data: {
        ref: `refs/heads/${this.branchName}`,
        sha: this.branchSha,
      },
    });

    $.export("$summary", `Successfully created branch with ID ${response.object.sha}.`);

    return response;
  },
};

Action 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
