1. Go to GitHub "personal access tokens" section
2. Generate a new personal access token
Only "repo" permission is needed:
Scroll down to the end of the page, and click on "Generate token" button.
3. Use the token with CircleCi
Copy the token:
Add it CircleCI UI under the ‘GITHUB_TOKEN’ environment variable or past it as plain text.
Pasting the token as simple text is NOT recommended!
You should do it only for (quick) POC purposes.
