opsdroid connector GitHub

A connector for opsdroid to comment on issues and pull requests on GitHub.


To use the GitHub connector you will need a user for the bot to use and generate a personal api token. It is recommended that you create a separate user from your own account for this. You also need to configure a webhook to send events to opsdroid.

Creating your application

  • Create GitHub user for the bot to use and log into it
  • Create a personal api token
  • Navigate to the repo you wish the bot to comment on (or a whole org if you prefer)
  • Go to the settings page
  • Create a webhook pointing to your opsdroid instance
  • Ensure you check 'Issues', 'Issue Comment' and 'Pull request'
