We are using shared credentials with SSH, so will this change affect our environment too..?

Hi Deepak,

I remember GitHub has already deprecated password authentication to their APIs last year as per Deprecated APIs and authentication - GitHub Developer Guide

Since then, we can only use your Personal Access Token (PAT) in place of password in your linked repository of type GitHub repository.

This anyway doesn't affect any authentications via SSH. Could you please share the news link with us?

Cheers,

I assume this is the news link you are referring to - https://www.gitkraken.com/blog/2021-github-authentication-policy-change.

If so, it appears that authentication via GirKraken or similar Git clients is affected. If they have been relying on a username and password to connect GitHub, It's time for them to transition to OAuth, SSH, or using a PAT. This will not affect users who have already authenticated to GitHub using other protocols.

Hope that helps.

Hi @Jeyanthan I ,

 

Thanks for the help.
But can you help me on how to check which method we are using..?

Because when i checked in the bamboo administration, In linked repository most of the authentication type is "SHARED CREDENTIALS" which are of ssh type.

I am not seeing any PAT or OAuth type of things..

Hey Deepak,

If you chose GitHub as the repository host, you will not be able to choose SSH type for authentication. You are allowed to authenticate via HTTP(S) using Personal Access Token only as described on this page.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Jey
