Get a Personal Access Token (PAT)
GitHub requires a Personal Access Token (PAT) to access repositories programmatically, e.g. when cloning or pulling a repo, or pulling a docker image. PATs are personal and must not be shared with anyone.
You can obtain a PAT as follows:
- Login to GitHub
- Go to your account
Settings > Developer Settings > Personal access tokens, and click on
Generate a new token.
- In the form, put a name, e.g.
Personal PAT, and select an expiration date, e.g. 3 years. Then, select the scopes you want to get access for; it is highly recommended you only tick
Generate tokenand make sure to save the string, which you will get in the new page and it looks like
