GitHub + JupiterOne Integration Benefits

  • Visualize GitHub users, teams, code repositories, pull requests, issues, installed GitHub applications, organizational secrets, repo secrets, repo environments, and environmental secrets in the JupiterOne graph.
  • Map GitHub users to employees in your JupiterOne account.
  • Map GitHub users to development/security trainings.
  • Monitor Github software development activities within repositories including changes, reviews and approvals.
  • Monitor changes to GitHub user teams, users, code repositories, and pull requests using JupiterOne alerts.
  • Monitor installations of GitHub Apps using JupiterOne alerts.
  • Monitor and audit outside collaborators on code repositories.

How it Works

  • JupiterOne periodically fetches installed GitHub apps, GitHub users, teams, code repositories, issues, and recently created/changed pull requests in those repositories to update the graph.
  • Write JupiterOne queries to review and monitor updates to the graph.
  • Configure alerts to take action when the JupiterOne graph changes.

The integration limits ingestion of pull requests during each execution to 500 of those most recently created/modified since the last execution. This is an accumulative process so that PRs which have been ingested but are not changing remain in the graph.


  • JupiterOne requires the JupiterOne GitHub app with read-only permissions be installed in your Github Organization account.
  • You must have permission in JupiterOne to install new integrations.

Integration Walkthrough

Upon creating a new GitHub integration configuration in JupiterOne, the user is re-directed to GitHub to install the JupiterOne GitHub app.

The integration is using GitHub Apps authentication, which requests permissions from the Organization installing the app. The app requests the following Read Only permissions:

  • Organization Metadata, Administration, Members, and Secrets
  • Repository Metadata, Secrets, Environments, and Issues

All of these permissions are Read Only.

Note that the Secrets API does not reveal the values of Secrets - only their names and creation dates.
