Troubleshooting GitHub

This doc is intended to help with situations where manual or automatic deploys are not working as expected. These scenarios are commonly caused by the Render GitHub app being misconfigured. For example, the GitHub app may be configured for the wrong set of repositories, or a repository that was previously public is made private.

Fixing GitHub App Permissions

Visit to manage the permissions you’ve given the Render app. Go ahead and install it if you haven’t already. If it’s already installed, click Configure.

Configure GitHub

From here, you can check the Repository access section to make sure your repository is included.

Git Connect
