Atom feed tokens changed

Hi all

Mystery solved: someone in the team updated their password, so the tokens changed.

===== Original message =====

I consume the atom feeds for commits and for releases from a couple of services such as Zapier.

This worked great for a couple of years, but a few days ago all the auth tokens on the feeds changed.

The old URLs looked like this: https://github.com/org/repo/commits/master.atom?

The new URLs are looking like this: https://github.com/org/repo/commits/master.atom?

So (1) the token changed, and (2) it’s now necessary to include the final == (and not URL-encoded).

Did this bite anyone else?

Is this documented anywhere?

Hey @jean,

Thanks for coming back with the update! I’ve edited the token portion of your URL’s above as this information is sensitive, I’d suggest you delete that token and generate a new one to be 100% safe.

Thanks!

Andrea
