Creating a GitHub token
Before you begin, we recommend you use a dedicated service account. It's not required but it is strongly recommended.
To enable GitHub Actions to notify our platform of code changes, we need to configure a GitHub Token as a repository secret. This guide will walk you through setting it up and by the end you will have a GitHub Token that you will need to keep some place secure.
- To get your token secret, go to https://github.com/settings/tokens and click on Generate new token(classic).
- Use the onscreen information to generate your token. The only scope required is the repo scope.
- Click on Generate token and copy your token some place secure.
