Optional post-install Permissions


It would be nice if I could have a separate set of optional permissions that can be selected post-install, such as when prompting the user for a user access token, so that the initial set of permissions doesn’t scare people off with too much access to their repositories.

My use case is for optionally updating repositories with a required status check after installing a GitHub App, as described in this issue.

Feature Request: "Optional" permissions

This would be a very nice touch, indeed! I’ll pass the request on to the product folks.

Thanks for the suggestion <3


+1 this feature would be very useful
