How to configure GitHub with DigitSec
- First, you will need to retrieve a Web Secret specific to your DigitSec workspace. Please use a browser to go to https://s4.digitsec.com and sign in.
- After logging in, find the DigitSec Workspace you wish to scan. Visit the Integrations--> GitHub tab for the Workspace.
- On the GitHub Details dialog pane, click on the Copy button to capture that Secret to your computer clipboard. Please leave this browser window open on this page as you will return to it in Step 7.
- Open a new browser window and log into https://github.com. Find the repository you wish to integrate with S4 and click on the Settings tab.
- On the screen that loads up, select Webhooks tab.
- Then click the Add Webhook button. For the payload URL, you will use https://s4.digitsec.com/webhooks/gitHub/<gitHubSecret>. Remember, this complete payload URL (including the GitHub secret) has been copied to your clipboard in step 3, so you can paste it into the Payload URL field on the screen below.
Note: DigitSec requires that you select the Let me select individual events and then select Pull requests. This is the only way to trigger a scan and post the results back to GitHub. By default, the Push event will be selected. Push must be de-selected.
- Return to the browser window you left open in Step 3. Add the repository name, GitHub username, and Personal access token and mark the checkbox if you want S4 to create a pull request at the end of the scan. Please see the details below to see how to get the Repository name, GitHub Username and Personal Access Token:
