HTTP-based git access and private submodules


Hi :wave:

Is it possible to fetch a private submodule if you use HTTP-based git access with GitHub apps, like explained in the docs?

What happens if I run git submodule update --init in a repository cloned that way and the submodule is private?


@calavera it should if the installation token in question has Repository contents read permissions.

But if that doesn’t work let me know and we’d be happy to investigate.
