GitHub Enterprise Authentication

To authenticate with GitHub Enterprise, navigate to the upper right corner to access Preferences Integrations.

From the Authentication window, enter your Host Domain then click the Generate an access token on your URL link.

This opens a web browser where you next log in with your GitHub Enterprise credentials and generate an access token.

Copy your token to the clipboard as this is the only time you will see this token. Paste the token into GitKraken and click on .

Generating an SSH Key for GitHub Enterprise

Note 📝 - GitKraken uses your SSH key defined in Preferences SSH for git operations unless you set up a GitHub-specific SSH key, or enable your local SSH Agent.

Once your GitHub Enterprise account has been connected to GitKraken, you may easily generate an SSH key and add it to your GitHub Enterprise account from Preferences Integrations.

Click the button and watch the magic happen.

Alternatively add existing SSH Defaults with or an existing key pair through Add existing SSH key.
