Opal + Github

Integration Overview

Opal supports integration with your GitHub organization and repositories. This integration allows you to easily invite members to Opal and control their access to individual repositories, granting them access privileges such as read only or the ability to both read and write.

Use cases

  • Implement Least Privilege - With Opal, customers are able to adopt granular and ephemeral access to critical resources
  • Accelerate Access Requests - Customers can delegate approvals to resource owners/managers and accelerate approvals via one-click in Slack
  • Streamline User Onboarding - Integrated with popular identity providers, customers can bind resource level access to native group structures
  • Configure break glass access - Opal enables customers to automate emergency break-glass access via integrations with on-call providers and manual pre-approvals
  • Automate Access Reviews - Opal offers end-to-end automation for user access reviews—snapshotting user lists, notifying reviewers, providing a self-service review workflow, and generating automated reports
