API scope to access issue tracker?


I’ve created an OAuth app that posts comments in the issue tracker on user’s behalf. However, to make it work, user have to give the app full read/write access to their repositories. Unsurprisingly, people don’t want to do that. Is there a way to grant just the access to issue tracker?


@sustrik :wave:,

OAuth Apps have a limited permission granularity model, as it can be seen at https://developer.github.com/apps/building-oauth-apps/understanding-scopes-for-oauth-apps/

For those case where fine-grained controls are important, we recommend to use GitHub Apps. Checkout our docs:
