Github two factor authentication
« on: April 02, 2021, 01:08:32 AM »
I understand that Github is moving to a two token factor authentication model. What does that mean for the existing Collaboration plugin?

I believe 2FA is for accessing the website and user account details. [1]

My understanding is that for using the API as a client, only user name and Personal Access Token is required. [2]

Phil Beauvoir is absolutely right - I am using coArchi with 2FA enabled and the only difference is that I punch in an access token instead of the account password.

I can confirm that this works the same way with MS Azure DevOps Git - which we use with MFA.
