  2. Under Developer settings click Personal access tokens.
  3. Generate a new personal access token (PAT).
  4. Give the token a description. (For example, "Git for Jira Server" or "Git for Jira Cloud")
  5. Select the "repo" and selecting all three scopes under it.
  6. GitHub 2FA generate access token
  7. Click Generate Token.
  8. Copy the token – (this is the ONLY time you'll see the token)
