Connecting with third-party applications

You can connect your GitHub AE identity to third-party applications using OAuth. When authorizing one of these applications, you should ensure you trust the application, review who it's developed by, and review the kinds of information the application wants to access.

When a third-party application wants to identify you by your GitHub AE login, you'll see a page with the developer contact information and a list of the specific data that's being requested.

Contacting the application developer

Because an application is developed by a third-party who isn't GitHub AE, we don't know exactly how an application uses the data it's requesting access to. You can use the developer information at the top of the page to contact the application admin if you have questions or concerns about their application.

OAuth 应用程序 owner information

If the developer has chosen to supply it, the right-hand side of the page provides a detailed description of the application, as well as its associated website.

Types of application access and data

Applications can have read or write access to your GitHub AE data.

  • Read access only allows an application to look at your data.
  • Write access allows an application to change your data.

About OAuth scopes

Scopes are named groups of permissions that an application can request to access both public and non-public data.

When you want to use a third-party application that integrates with GitHub AE, that application lets you know what type of access to your data will be required. If you grant access to the application, then the application will be able to perform actions on your behalf, such as reading or modifying data. For example, if you want to use an app that requests user:email scope, the app will have read-only access to your private email addresses. For more information, see "About scopes for OAuth 应用程序."

Note: Currently, you can't scope source code access to read-only.

Types of requested data

There are several types of data that applications can request.

Tip: 我们建议您定期审查您授权的集成。 删除在一段时间内未使用的任何应用程序和令牌。 更多信息请参阅“>审查授权的集成”。

Type of dataDescription
Commit statusYou can grant access for a third-party application to report your commit status. Commit status access allows applications to determine if a build is a successful against a specific commit. Applications won't have access to your code, but they can read and write status information against a specific commit.
DeploymentsDeployment status access allows applications to determine if a deployment is successful against a specific commit for a repository. Applications won't have access to your code.
GistsGist access allows applications to read or write to both your internal and secret Gists.
HooksWebhooks access allows applications to read or write hook configurations on repositories you manage.
NotificationsNotification access allows applications to read your GitHub AE notifications, such as comments on issues and pull requests. However, applications remain unable to access anything in your repositories.
Organizations and teamsOrganization and teams access allows apps to access and manage organization and team membership.
Personal user dataUser data includes information found in your user profile, like your name, e-mail address, and location.
RepositoriesRepository information includes the names of contributors, the branches you've created, and the actual files within your repository. An application can request access to all of your repositories of any visibility level. For more information, see "About repositories."
Repository deleteApplications can request to delete repositories that you administer, but they won't have access to your code.

Requesting updated permissions

Applications can request new access privileges. When asking for updated permissions, the application will notify you of the differences.
