Overview

Authorizing a Github Account

The first time you use a Github card in your FLO, you will need to authorize an account.

  1. Add an Account Nickname. This should be unique, so that in the case that your teammates authorize multiple Github accounts, you will be able to tell them apart.
  2. Click “Create” to launch a window to sign in to your Github Account. Once you are signed in, this configuration will be saved.

      • Request Type (dropdown) - Available HTTP Request Methods. Choose from GET, POST, and DELETE. Refer to API docs in order to determine which request type to use.

        • GET: retrieves data from a web server based on your parameters. GET requests a representation of the specified resource, and if successful will receive a 200 OK response message with the requested content. Additional documentation here.

        • POST: sends data to a web server based on your parameters. POST requests include actions like uploading a file. Multiple POST’s may result in a different outcome than a single POST, so you should be cautious about unintentionally sending multiple POST’s. Additional documentation here.

        • PATCH: applies partial modifications to a resource on a web server based on your parameters. PATCH is not idempotent, meaning that the result of multiple PATCH’s could have unintended consequences. If a PUT is successful, you will receive a 200 response message (usually 204). Additional documentation here.
