Migrating Multiple Repositories to GitHub Apps Guide
If your organization has more than 50 active repositories to migrate to our new GitHub Apps integration, you can use the travis_migrate_to_apps gem to migrate them in one sweep rather than having to add them manually one by one in the GitHub UI.
Here are the steps:
1. Install the gem #
gem install travis_migrate_to_apps
2. Generate a GitHub personal access token with repo scope #
You can generate a new GitHub token here.
Choose the name of your liking and ensure to select the whole
repo scope as shown below:
Then click the “Generate token” button at the bottom to generate the token.
You’ll then be back on the GitHub token page:
Take care of copying the newly generated token and save it for later usage.
Note: if you are migrating an organization, the token must be generated by an owner of the GitHub organization.
3. Activate the Travis CI GitHub Apps integration with 1 repo #
Go to your profile page on Travis CI: https://travis-ci.com/profile
Click the “Activate GitHub Apps Integration” button highlighted below:
You’ll directed to the GitHub Apps page for the Travis CI app:
Choose at least one repository and click the “Approve & Install” button.
You’ll then be redirected to your profile page on Travis CI and the newly added repository should appear under “GitHub Apps Integration”:
4. Get your Travis CI API token #
Here are the two ways you can get this token:
- On your profile page: https://travis-ci.com/profile
- Via the Travis CI client by running:
travis token --com
5. Run the gem #
travis_migrate_to_apps [owner_name] [travis_access_token] [github_access_token]
[owner_name]is the GitHub account (user or organization) where the repositories you want to migrate are located
[travis_access_token]is the Travis CI token obtained in step #4 above
[github_access_token]is the GitHub token obtained in step #2 above
6. Check the migration result #
You can now refresh your profile page on Travis CI and your newly migrated repositories should appear under the “GitHub Apps Integration” section.
