GitHub


You can use the GitHub connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from GitHub and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from GitHub, you first must establish a connection to GitHub. Follow these steps to connect GitHub to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the GitHub row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Repository Name - Enter the name of the repository that you want to use.

    • User Login - Enter the alphanumeric username for your account (for example, cdata-2023).

  6. Click Connect to GitHub to connect to your GitHub account.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
