Create a connection to GitHub Enterprise Server - Developer Tools console

Create a connection to GitHub Enterprise Server

You use connections to associate your AWS resources with a third-party repository. You can use the AWS Management Console or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) to create a connection to GitHub Enterprise Server.

Before you begin:

  • You must already have a GitHub Enterprise Server instance and a repository in it.

  • You need to be an administrator of the GitHub Enterprise Server instance in order to create GitHub apps and create a host resource as shown in this section.


Connections only provide access to repositories owned by the GitHub Enterprise Server account that is used during connection creation to authorize installation of the GitHub app.
