Managing GitHub Connect

You can enable GitHub Connect to access additional features and workflows for votre instance GitHub Enterprise Server.

About GitHub Connect

You can access additional features and workflows on votre instance GitHub Enterprise Server by enabling GitHub Connect. For more information, see "About GitHub Connect."

When you enable GitHub Connect, you configure a connection between votre instance GitHub Enterprise Server and an enterprise account on GitHub Enterprise Cloud. La connexion utilise HTTPS sur les ports 443 ou 80 et est sécurisée par TLS.

Enabling GitHub Connect creates a GitHub App owned by the enterprise account on GitHub Enterprise Cloud. GitHub Enterprise Server uses the GitHub App's credentials to make requests to GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

GitHub Enterprise Server stores credentials from the GitHub App. The following credentials will be replicated to all nodes in a high availability or cluster environment, and stored in any backups, including snapshots created by GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities.

  • An authentication token, which is valid for one hour
  • A private key, which is used to generate a new authentication token

Prerequisites

To use GitHub Connect, you must have an enterprise account on GitHub.com that uses GitHub Enterprise Cloud. You may already have GitHub Enterprise Cloud included in your plan.

Note: Your enterprise account on GitHub.com must be invoiced. Enterprise accounts on the free trial of GitHub Enterprise Cloud or that pay by credit card cannot be connected to votre instance GitHub Enterprise Server.

If your enterprise account on GitHub.com uses IP allow lists, you must add the IP address or network for votre instance GitHub Enterprise Server to your IP allow list on GitHub.com. For more information, see "Enforcing policies for security settings in your enterprise" in the GitHub Enterprise Cloud documentation.

To configure a connection, your proxy configuration must allow connectivity to github.com, api.github.com, and uploads.github.com. For more information, see "Configuring an outbound web proxy server."
