Every time I open my Trello board, or come back to an open one after about 15 minutes, the GitHub power up does not pick up my authorization. So instead of seeing my pull requests properly, I see them greyed out without detail and I have to click a button to enable the extension again. After I click the button, the process runs automatically so it does know I already enabled the access before, yet my Trello cards seem not to know that.
I have already tried disabling and enabling the power up. This happens to me on multiple boards. Looks like a bug with the power up to me - does anybody know if I can do anything to fix this problem?
Hi @Lenka Pitonakova ,
Welcome to the community!
Github requires SUDO permission and as we work in GUI the SUDO permission is asked by authentication!
Please have a look at this article/documentation https://docs.github.com/en/github/using-git/why-is-git-always-asking-for-my-password
You have to authenticate multiple times if you use GitHub power-up in Trello or anywhere!
Github power-up requires authentication to verify that you are the owner and it was the rule of Linux/Github. so power-up has to authenticate multiple times!
There are more important security issue can occur so to prevent any security issue it requires authentication to verify the owner!
Hmm in that case, to me, the power-up simply doesn't work well and it should handle authentications in a better fashion. It's terrible from the usability perspective - especially as it looses the authentication credentials / token every 15 minutes or so.
Bitbucket power-up certainly doesn't have the same issue.

Please have a look at this documentation
