How do I determine the the scope required for a particular API call?

Trying to convert our code to use Personal Access Tokens, but looking through the PAT Scopes available, it’s unclear what scopes I need to grant to the token.

Initially I need a user that can access the Issues API, when reviewing the Issues documentation nowhere is it documented what scope is required to perform the various actions.

Is there some table somewhere that lists what scopes are needed to access each of the API’s?  This is what I’m used to with other services that have started using PATs. 


Hey! It does not appear that this API endpoint has documented the required OAuth scopes. I suggest getting in contact with GitHub support here:
