Github: Open new Github issue

Enabling the Github Integration is easy. Clicking the button to connect your Github account should open up a new window.

If nothing shows up when you click the button then your browser blocked the popup. If that’s the case you will need to allow popups for the app to continue with the process.


Once the window is open it will ask you to authenticate using your Github credentials.


After signing in, Github will ask you if you would like to ‘Authorize Brightreps’ to access your account.


Authorizing the BrightReps app will eventually close the window and redirect you back to the BrightReps Github Integration page which will show a ‘Connected’ Status for the integration.


GitHub Step Type

Once you set up the integration the Github Step Type should now be available for use in the Step Type Library in your Flow Builder.


Configuring the Step


  • Repo Owner Name: The owner name for the repository
  • Repo Name: The repository name
  • Issue Title: A title for the new issue to be created.
  • Issue Body: The content to include in the New Issue to be created.

Note: you can use dynamic variables in all the above fields. To access all the variables available to you, click the “+” icon on the right.
