Create a Github App

Description of the feature request

Github allows the creation of apps that can manage permissions to GitHub repos in one contained place. Other CI services like Azure Pipelines and Travis CI provide apps to simply setup and management.

Use case / for what or how I would use it

  • simplifies the permissions setup and management by putting it all under a single app rather than managing deploy keys and Webhooks separately for each repo
  • removes the need to create machine users on GitHub to access multiple repos from a single build
  • removes the need to separately setup a Service credential User to get build status on pull requests

@CraigSiemens I’ll merge this #feature-request (Create a Github App) into GitHub checks / GitHub App as it requires the same steps and that one has more votes. Thanks for all the infos and don’t forget to vote on that one! :wink:
