I’m trying to migrate from dependabot-preview to the GitHub-native Dependabot. One issue I’m running into is branch protections: once a PR is ready to merge, I’ve tried issuing a
@dependabot merge command. Unfortunately this runs into branch protection rules. With dependabot-preview, you could add the dependabot-preview app as an app with push access to the branch. However, I’m not seeing an equivalent app for GitHub-native Dependabot.
How can I get GitHub-native Dependabot to successfully execute the merge command against a protected branch?
