Configuring GitHub integration with Bright projects

After you have connected Bright to your GitHub account, you need to integrate a specific Bright project with your GitHub repository(ies) to be used for a scan. The integration allows Bright to automatically open the details of all detected vulnerabilities both as issues and code scanning alerts in the associated GitHub repositories.
Moreover, you can select a certain severity level of issues (findings) to be sent to the repositories associated with your Bright project.

To integrate a certain Bright project with your GitHub repository(ies), follow these steps.
