Github App: repositoryEvent not triggering when editing repo (enabling/disabling 'issues' feature)

Hi all,

Currently I’m developing a Github App and I need to ensure that the issues section is always enable (the Github App creates issues to provide feedback and steps over commits). However, even with Administration  permisions (Read & Write), if I disable the issues over the repo’s settings (of a repo with the app installed), no events are being trigger. Also, it seems that other settings actually trigger a _ repository _ event. For example when a repo changes from public to private or vice versa (the payload  action of the event equals privatized or publicized ).

So, are there some other permissions that I need to give to my app? or maybe no events are being triggered for changes related with the features section of the repo settings? (my initial hope was that a _ repository  event with an action equal to  edited _ will be trigger for such changes over the repo settings).

Any guidance over this is greatly appreciated :slight_smile:
