How to link to Private Github Repositories from Organisation

I followed the guide from atlassian to link to a Github account. I created a new account which has writing-rights to our organizations private repositories. I linked to that user in JIRA.


But it always displays "No repositories".


I found answers and workaround hacks but they do not work / the steps aren't correct anymore. They're mostly 2 years old already anyway.


So, whats the 2015 way of connecting JIRA and Github (Private Repositories from Organizations)?

Please try the workaround suggested and let us know how that goes. smile

Hope this helps!
