I’m importing GitHub issues from another system on a periodic basis. Right now, these issues are created as me, which could clutter up my dashboard, send me notification emails, etc. I sought to create a new GitHub account but GitHub recommends against doing so. I also looked into creating an Application (Bot) account, but those appear to be limited to apps that react to various hooks and actions. It does not appear that I can register an app and retrieve its token for use with an external REST client.
Thoughts on the best approach here? Would like to stay on GitHub’s good side!
