Please see GitHub's documentation or follow the following steps to create a PAT:
  1. Go to your GitHub account settings
  2. Navigate to Developer settings and then Personal access tokens
  3. Click on Generate new token (classic)
  4. Give your token a relevant name and select the desired scopes for access, but at least:
    • repo
    • read:user
  5. Click Generate token and make sure to copy it immediately, as it won't be shown again
This token will serve as the authentication method to fetch both Pull Request data and the Git repository for SOUP dependency analysis from GitHub.
When entering the authentication credentials in Ketryx, the username has no effect, but the password should be the PAT.
