Unable to change permission on "Status" event subscription

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi all, 

 

I'm currently developing an internal Github App for our organization and everything has been working out great so far.

Today I wanted to add the Status event subscription to the app in order to implement some logic related to the corresponding webhooks, however I cannot click the Status checkbox in the settings page of my app under Subscribe to events. When I try to, an error message appears on the right hand side saying Change privileges to be able to select events.

 

I tried to give access to pretty much everything on another sample app to see if I missed some permissions but I can't find any solution... Any idea what the issue could be?

 

Thanks in advance.

I have the exact same problem. Did you find any solution?

Unfortunately not at the moment. However I contacted GH support and they said they're investigating but there's no ETA, so I assume it's something on their end.

 

I postponed the changes that required permission changes as I don't really want to recreate the app, so I hope it gets fixed soon.

 

I'll post here when I get updates 👍

Re: Unable to change permission on "Status" event subscription

I might have found a solution that seems to be working for me for now, feel free to give it a try.

 

Note that I got the permissions updated notification on my repos, so keep in mind that your users might get the permission updated alert as well while doing this.

 

- Go to your app permissions and events page

- Make sure the permission related to your event - at the top of the page under "Repository permissions" - is disabled (e.g. Pull Request for the Pull Request Review event). If it's enabled temporarily disable it.

- Save changes

- Go back to permissions and events

- Enable the permission again

- DO NOT save changes, but scroll down and look for the event you want your app to be subscribed to 

- Select it and now it should be working

- Save changes

GH support sent me an email last night stating they fixed it.

 

I can confirm it's working as expected now 👍
