Got Resource not accessible by integration even though I have Pull Request and Issues Read and Write


ERROR event: {"message":"Resource not accessible by integration","documentation\_url":"[]("}

on my GitHub App even though I have the read and write perms set for both Issues and Pull Requests. 

The app was running locally (local development server) and the repo I was testing with is a private repo. Note that the app is installed for all repos on my account and I’m able to recieve webHook triggers. This API is also available with GitHub apps so not sure why I am getting the integration error. Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Unfortunately, with only the information you’ve given us, it sounds like it should work. Given that you’re working with a private repository, you may want to reach out to private support at with the exact URL and payload you’re using so they can take a deeper look at what you’re doing and what might be going wrong. If you can reproduce the problem on a public repository and give us the exact URL and payload here, we’d be happy to take a look.

Let us know if you have more questions.

Did you figure this out? I’m having the same problem and it’s even a public repo which I can access WITHOUT an API token but when I use a token (from a user who is an admin of the repo), then I get “Resource not accessible by integration”.
