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.

How to setup the Github auth provider

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"

If you are unsure on how to find your callback URL in the Saascannon Dashboard (opens in a new tab), follow our guide on how to find your callback url for auth providers
