Reading Secrets by dependabot

I have configured dependabot.yml file to read from private npm repository.
I have stored y reporsitory credentials in github secret of that repository.
Seems like dependabot is not able to read secrets form there.
Any help would be aprreciated

Observing similar issue.

In my case I’ve added netlify auth token to the list of dependabot secrets. That secret is referenced by the regular github workflow file.

It doesn’t seem to work. Do I need to do anything else to get it working?

Surprisingly enough if I re-trigger that action from the PR page secret gets read successfully. Is it because when I re-trigger an action it is being executed in my (repo owner) access scope?

UPD: This issue might have all the answers
