Together with support for a new type of GitHub Projects, the scope of required permissions for GitProtect OAuth and the previously generated Personal Access Token has also changed. All GitHub backup jobs require reauthorization of the application and/or generation of a new Personal Access Token.

For proper operation, it is necessary to re-authorize the GitProtect application, which will allow the application to grant the necessary permissions: project (full control of projects).

If you use Personal Access Token – authorize in your GitHub account
If you use OAuth authentication – authorize in GitProtect account
