I am have working on getting the github addon to work but having some difficulty

I am able to write a script against our github with my api key but I have not been successful in implementing the addon in splunk.

we have mfa enabled on ALL accounts including mine but I can write scripts,So is it not possible at all to get this plugin to work with mfa enabled on all accounts?

The details section is unclear if there is a way to get the addon to work bc of the mention of API key

Like I can script a script with an API key on an account that has MFA enabled and get data

We are using github.com no internal instance

I'll need a little more detail on whether you're accessing GitHub.com or an internal GitHub Enterprise server. If this is an internal server, there are some configurations that admins can enable that could prevent the app from working.

The app will function with MFA accounts as long as the API token is created with the proper permissions and has permissions to the orgs/repos it is being configured to access. All that is required is to use the token as the password.

Check the internal logs for errors from the inputs and you may consider enabling debug logging in the app to see more detail. If that isn't useful for identifying the issue, post back some of the logs output.
