Auto-merging of Dependabot PRs

Dear GitHub Team,

We really like the new options to configure Dependabot behavior (, however I don’t see an option to enable auto-merging of Dependabot PRs. This would be extremely helpful for auto-managing security updates. Do you know if such an option exists, or is it planned to be released soon?

Thank you

Hi @dinvlad,

Unfortunately auto-merge is not coming to GitHub-native Dependabot in the near term, due to security worries we’ve outlined here.
