Tailored for developers and collaborative coding, Github offers a familiar platform for software professionals. By integrating Github authentication, your product provides developers with a seamless login experience, leveraging their trust in the platform.
To enable Github (opens in a new tab) as an auth provider, you will need to register an OAuth app through github. Follow the official github guide (opens in a new tab) for up to date instructions on how to do this.
When creating your new github oauth app, you will need to provide an application name, homepage url and callback url. Then click "Register Application"
Once you have created the Github oauth app, you will need to generate a new client secret.
You now have everything you need to enable github logins in your saascannon tenant. Make a note of your new client ID and client Secret which have been displayed on your screen.
Paste your new client credentials into the enable dialog in the saascannon dashboard then click the "Enable Github Auth Integration" button.
Congratulations! Users will now be able to login and link their accounts with Github accounts in your saascannon tenant.
