Which Github App perm to request for access to Timeline API


#1

Which Github App perm should I request for access to Timeline API? Currently, I have Pull Requests, Repository Contents, Organization Members enabled via read-only. I’ve tried turning on Issues, but that doesn’t seem to make a difference.

With my personal access key I can get access to the timeline API but shifting to Github App perm tokens gives me 404s for the same api calls (v3).


#2

Are you talking about the Issue Timeline API which is currently in preview? https://developer.github.com/v3/issues/timeline/

That endpoint is not yet enabled for GitHub Apps, as far as I can tell.


#3

Anyone know if it works via v4 with github apps? And in that world what
perm?


#4

GraphQL has the IssueTimelineConnection: https://developer.github.com/v4/reference/object/issuetimelineconnection/

however GraphQL isn’t 100% supported in GitHub Apps. My recommendation would be to do an experiment to see if you could get it working.


#5

Is there some roadmap to supporting timeline in some form via github apps?


#6

We don’t have an ETA at the moment, but we’re in the midst of doing an audit of the availability of REST endpoints to GitHub Apps.

Once we do have a timeline available, we’ll report back here to let you know.
