B. Job Configuration

Steps:

  1. Branch Sources > Add source > Github Select the API endpoint
  2. For Owner use the organization
  3. For Credential use Username and Password, typing as password the personal API Token.
  4. Since SCM API 2.2.4 Behaviors section > Make sure Filter by name is removed unless you only want to discover a subset of branches. If it is configured make sure to include PR-* to Discover Pull Requests.

Notes: Automatic branch project triggering > Branch names to build automatically Allows you to control the SCM commit trigger coming from branch indexing.

After saving the job, there is a view with contains all Repositories.
