Demo Video

Here is a short (25-second) demo video on where to make sure that GitHub links GitHub App is authorized to access your organization's data.

Please watch the video below and pay attention that the org access is given, not only personal.

Usage with private repositories

To use the private repositories, you need to allow our GitHub App to access your private repositories. We do not clone or access source code. We use GitHub APIs to get additional information from the links inserted in Confluence.

If you want to use this App only with public repositories - you do NOT need any additional configuration. It works out of the box.

When you allow GitHub App to access your data, please make sure that you grant permissions to your organization as well, not only your personal repositories.
