Which Github App perm to request for access to Timeline API


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).


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.


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


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.


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


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.
