gh auth refresh

gh auth refresh [flags]

Expand or fix the permission scopes for stored credentials.

The --scopes flag accepts a comma separated list of scopes you want your gh credentials to have. If absent, this command ensures that gh has access to a minimum set of scopes.

Options

-h, --hostname <string>
The GitHub host to use for authentication
-s, --scopes <strings>
Additional authentication scopes for gh to have

Examples

$ gh auth refresh --scopes write:org,read:public_key
# => open a browser to add write:org and read:public_key scopes for use with gh api

$ gh auth refresh
# => open a browser to ensure your authentication credentials have the correct minimum scopes
