GitHub Connector and Datasource Configuration

The GitHub connector retrieves data from GitHub repositories using the GitHub REST API.

GitHub repository access may require authentication, in which case GitHub credentials or oAuth token Authentication will be used to perform GitHub requests. See the GitHub Authentication page for more information.

Tip
The GitHub API service implements rate limiting. If you repeatedly crawl the commits in a large or old repository, this can trigger a temporary lockout. For this reason, Lucidworks recommends creating a separate GitHub user specifically for Fusion’s GitHub connector.

Configuration

Tip
When entering configuration values in the UI, use unescaped characters, such as \t for the tab character. When entering configuration values in the API, use escaped characters, such as \\t for the tab character.
