I'm trying to connect GitHub to Trello and Zapier is not recognizing my GitHub repo. It validates when i add it to My Apps, but when i try to test it in the Zap, it doesn't show the repos that I have and the connection test fails. I've e-mailed Zapier to ask for help, but I'm in the middle of my free trial so I'm not a priority (which doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling about them, BTW). Anyone who can let me know what I need to provide to the program so I can get this running?

Hey there @Howard!

It looks like our support team followed up with you to explain the following:

You may not have allowed Zapier to OAuth connect to your organizations in the "approve" screen. If you remove Zapier from your Github (https://github.com/settings/applications) and then reconnect Github to Zapier (https://zapier.com/app/settings/authorizations), you should see the screen again. Leave the org missing checked this time.

You may need to approve third party applications for your organization, which you can do by following the guide here: https://help.github.com/en/github/setting-up-and-managing-organizations-and-teams/approving-oauth-apps-for-your-organization

If you are not the owner/admin of that organization, the Settings tab mentioned in that guide may not appear for you. If that's the case, you may have to reach out to an administrator at your company to ask for those permissions.

Hope that helps!
