2. Select GitHub. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within GitHub. Finish by clicking Add Alert Source -> Done.
When an alert source turns Active, it’ll show up under Configured Alert Sources, you can either generate a test alert from the integration or wait for a real-time alert to be generated by the Alert Source. An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service.

  • Repository Vulnerability Alerts
This integration supports the below GitHub events:
  • Issues (Supports auto-resolution)
  • Pushes
  • Pull Requests (Supports auto-resolution)
  • Releases
  • Repository Vulnerability Alerts (Supports auto-resolution)
That is it, you are good to go! Everytime an Issue, Push, Pull Request or a Release event occurs in GitHub, an incident would be created in Squadcast. When an Issue or a Pull Request is closed in GitHub, the corresponding incident in Squadcast will be automatically resolved for it. However, for Pushes and Releases, users will have to manually resolve the associated incidents in Squadcast.
