The expectation is that you already have an account with Github or know how to set one up.

  1. From the homepage select your project > Then, select the Configurations tab.
  2. Select the Integrations tab from the top menu.
  3. From the left menu select Issue Tracker.
  4. Choose an Environment Name Profile.
  5. Select Github for the Issue Tracker.
  6. Create New Issue Tracker Credentials by clicking on the button. Or, select from the Credentials dropdown if it's already created. You can create a new user with read/write access to the test repository.

Note: You'll need generate an API token to add your Github account. You can find more information how to set up Personal Access Token here.


  1. Once you add the credentials, add the Issue-Tracker URL.

The following fields are optional:

  1. Assignee Username. The Github username of the assignee must be a collaborator with write access.

Activating the toggle button will log the vulnerabilities to Github.

Finally, click on Test Credentials button to validate the connection has established and click Save.

If everything is setup correctly, you'll see Valid Credentials message at the bottom of the screen.
