Connecting to GitHub

This document is a step by step guide for setting up the GitHub integration within BrightGauge.


Step 1 - Log in to your BrightGauge Account  

If you haven’t created an account yet, go here to get started.


If you are logged in with a New Account:

From the account Overview page, click on the "Add a Datasource" button:

  •  If you are logged in with an Existing Account:

    Click on the "Data" menu at the top righthand corner of the screen, and select "Datasources" from the drop down menu:



Find the GitHub datasource under "All" or under the appropriate category:


Step 2 - Authenticate with GitHub

 Now we need to authenticate with GitHub.  

  1. Click on the Authorize in GitHub button at the center of your screen.


  1. If you're not currently logged into GitHub, they'll ask you to login.  If you are, proceed to step III


  1. Authorize BrightGauge to speak with GitHub


  1. Once authenticated, the window will close and a successful test connection will show in BrightGauge.


  1. Name the datasource (by default it will say GitHub Api) and make sure to click save at the bottom left.  IF you do not save the datasource, you will have to redo all steps.



Once you’ve saved the connection then the datasets and gauges will be added to your account.  You are now set!
