  • The steps required to force GitHub to authorize Unito

We've launched an evolution of our product, so some of the terminology and guidance in this article might be a bit out of date, and we're working hard to update it. You can learn more about our new workflow offering here, brush up on the new terminology here, and find out how to build your first workflow here.

Sometimes you need to (gently) force GitHub to re-authorize Unito for access. For example, this could be needed when you gain access to a new organization in GitHub; Unito will not get access to the organization's repositories automatically.

How to force the re-authorization of Unito

  • On the Unito App, disconnect your GitHub account in the Your Accounts sidebar
  • On the GitHub site, edit your personal settings and access the Application settings.
  • Find Unito in the list of Authorized Applications and REVOKE its access. Don't worry, we won't feel a thing.
  • Back on the Unito App, ADD a GitHub account again from the Your Connectors sidebar.
  • You'll be brought to GitHub where you will be asked to grant access to your repositories and organizations.
  • If your organization has enabled third party application restrictions, you might need to request access from the organization owners. On the GitHub authorization page, click the REQUEST ACCESS button for each organization you want Unito to access.
  • Click the AUTHORIZE APPLICATION button

Note: when adding a new GitHub account, if you want to use a different GitHub User than the one you're logged in with, simply sign out of GitHub before connecting it from the Unito App.
