Github access token deprecation

I have been getting and ignoreing emails from github for a while now:

Subject: [GitHub API] Deprecation notice for authentication via URL query parameters

Please use the Authorization HTTP header instead, as using the `access_token` query parameter is deprecated. If this token is being used by an app you don't have control over, be aware that it may stop working as a result of this deprecation.`

It looks like the access token is correct and working but github want it in the header rather than a query parameter. I think Codefresh need to change this as it’s nothing to do with anything I setup.

Does anyone know if this is in hand? Searching around I can’t see any reference to is.


It doesn’t have anything to do with your configuration, it’s on Codefresh to update their authorization method. GitHub announced the change in November but there’s no timeline to when they’ll all actually turn off the old option.

So, being that there isn’t a strict timeline I doubt this is going to be prioritized. You’ll just have to live the warnings like the rest of us till then :wink:


Our engineering team is already aware of this issue. I believe it is already handled but I will double check and get back to you.

But you are correct. This is on the Codefresh side of things and there is nothing you need to do or change in your pipelines.

Hello again.

Our engineering team has already fixed the issue and it should already be active in all Codefresh accounts. However several times we roll a new feature gradually just to be on the safe side and maybe your Codefresh account is not updated yet.

Could I ask both of you what was the last date that you received this email from Github?

Thanks in advance.

I last got the email from github yesterday (14-Apr-2020)

Thanks. Our engineering team will investigate further. I will let you know once I have an update.
