Personal Access Token

Saurabh Sharma

In case you are still using the basic/auth it is time to move to personal access token.

Official documentation is the best guide.

Personal access tokens (PATs) are an alternative to using passwords for authentication to GitHub Enterprise Server when using the GitHub API or the command line.

Step 1:

Go to the settings from the

top right

Once you navigate into settings, you have to select

Select Personal access tokens, and then click Generate new token in the next scren

Select the appropriate name and scope for the token.

Once you are done click Generate

Once added you can use that as part of the scm plugin in the main pom, or use it in the settings.xml. In my case I am using it in server.xml but need to add the property project.scm.id so that you refer the credentials.

<project.scm.id>github.com</project.scm.id>
