Github Issue Notifier is built to watch the selected GitHub repositories for new issues containing at least one of the selected keywords. The discovered issues are output into the default dataset and, if configured, sent as Slack messages. Finds all existing issues on first run and only new ones since the last search on subsequent runs. Issue edits are not accounted for.


To run this Actor, you'll need at least one Github repository and a Slack API token. You can get the token by following the instructions on the Slack tutorials page. Here's the full input that you'll need:

  • URLs or repository names of repositories you want to monitor.
  • Keywords that will be looked for in the titles and bodies of new issues.
  • Slack channel where the notification with Github issues information will be sent (e.g. #notifications).
  • Slack API token in a format xoxp-xxxxxxxxx-xxxx.


Each run of this Actor outputs an array of new issues. The issue objects are what GitHub's Octokit API returns, see more at their docs.
