GitKraken Boards and GitKraken Timelines has sunset at the end of 2022. The below information and features may be out of date. Please read our full announcement and FAQ to learn more.

These scopes can be granted to PATs or OAuth Apps.


Both PATs and OAuth tokens are scoped to specific resources. This way you can limit what 3rd party applications are allowed to do with your account. We currently have 4 different scopes that you can grant to PATs or OAuth Apps:

  • board:write
    • board:read
  • user:write
    • user:read

Please note that the "write" scopes implicitly provide access to read, but not vice versa.

Board Scopes

The board scope grants access to board information and everything that lies within. This includes:

User Scopes
