Hi @jasminewu229,

I believe it should work properly with an access token as described in their documentation. Please let us know if you encounter issues after that.

So I created the token, how do I use it w/ ST? Only basic auth is provided as an option.

In case anyone else ends up here looking for an answer: You just use it as the password, alongside your GitHub Enterprise username (i.e. your GitHub profile name, not necessarily the username/email you use for SSO).
