Issue creating new Apps using the one Github from multiple team

Hello all,

I am facing an issue with Github and AppPlaform. I have multiple teams available, and Gihub accesses configured (and working) for one of my team. When i am trying to set up a new app from another team, digital ocean don’t have access to my GitHub repositories. If i click on “manage access” i am redirected to Github which shows that everything is properly configured.

Best regards Rkdm

Well, the UI of this forum is organized in a way that it’s hard to see some replies, so I’ll repeat my last reply here to make it more visible.

Originally when I tried to connect the same organization, it didn’t work. So I had the problem that @rkdm has raised and that I described before.

Then I decided to test whether it works if I’m connecting a different organization to a different team. I worked.

And after that something changed. It just started working for the same organization also. So eventually I was able to connect the same repo of one organization to different DO teams.

To conclude, if you facing the same problem then try to connect different organizations first, and it might fix DO behavior for you and let you connect same org to different DO teams.

Hi there,

I’ve just tested this and it seems to be working as expected. What you need to do is:

  • Switch to your new team
  • Try to add a new App
  • Click on the manage GitHub access button
  • Choose your GitHub account
  • And then allow the access to your repositories:

That way the new team will be associated with your GitHub account.

Let me know how it goes.
