The integration process with GitHub varies slightly depending on whether you are working with public or private repositories. Here's a breakdown of the key differences:
Public Repositories
  • Accessibility: Public repositories are open to the public, meaning that anyone can view the repository content and its history.
  • Integration Setup: For public repositories, the setup process for integrating with Ketryx is generally straightforward. You do not need to use a Personal Access Token for basic integration tasks, such as SOUP dependency analysis.
  • Data Retrieval: Accessing publicly available data from GitHub, like pull requests or code changes still need a Personal Access Token to access GitHub's API.
Private Repositories
  • Accessibility: Private repositories restrict access to authorized individuals or collaborators. Only those with permission can view and interact with the repository.
  • Integration Setup: When integrating with private repositories, you typically require a PAT. This token ensures secure and authorized communication between GitHub and Ketryx for tasks like SOUP dependency analysis and Code Change Reviews.
It's important to consider your repository's visibility when setting up the integration, as public and private repositories have distinct access requirements. The integration guide provides specific instructions based on the type of repository you are working with, ensuring a seamless and secure integration experience.
