Git Town can interact with GitHub in your name, for example to update pull requests as branches get created, shipped, or deleted. To do so, Git Town needs a personal access token with the repo scope. You can create one in your account settings.

The best way to enter your token is via the setup assistant.

config file

Since your API token is confidential, you cannot add it to the config file.

Git metadata

You can configure the API token manually by running:

git config [--global] git-town.github-token <token>

The optional --global flag applies this setting to all Git repositories on your local machine. When not present, the setting applies to the current repo.
