GitHub connector allows the downloading of source files and uploading of target files directly to/from the GitHub repository.
The connector uses the GitHub API to implement the integration.The connector allows access to all repositories associated with a GitHub account.
There are a number of use cases for the connector:
Project Managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository.
Set up the Automation Widget allowing Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.
Use Automated Project Creation (APC) to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in file size is detected in monitored files or a folder.
Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs. All files are imported when a folder is monitored.
Use the Git connector if you need to monitor an entire subdirectory.
This connector supports absolute path setting. Target translation files can be stored only in the same branch as the source file.
Set up Continuous Jobs to have Memsource monitor selected files for changes.
The Connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have Memsource notify 3rd party systems about certain events (for example, a job status change).
If requirements are:
Limiting Memsource access to a single repository.
Using an SSH key for authentication.
Monitoring an entire subdirectory for a change in Automated Project Creation.
Detection of file changes based on Last modified date as opposed to just file size.
