What scope do I need to be able to write an issue?

I am trying to write a simple bug traking app that would allow a third party to post an issue to my private repo. I only want them to have access to issues and the minimum of other info they need.

What scopes do I need? Is this possble at all?



The scope you need is public_repo.

You can read scopes information here : https://developer.github.com/apps/building-oauth-apps/understanding-scopes-for-oauth-apps/#available-scopes

As I mentioned I need them to be able to post to a *private* repo. So far my work around is to open a public repo just for issues.

Where you able to find the appropriate scopes for a private repo ?

There is only the wide ranging scope repo:
