Tokenless Invoke

Run tests from GitHub Actions without having to specify API token

This option allows you to use the GITHUB_TOKEN instead of a normal API token to invoke the tests. The GH token will be exchanged for a very short-lived API token at invocation time.

To use this feature make sure it is enabled in GitHub integration settings in the webpage and pass in secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN as the EW_API_TOKEN environment variable:

  runs-on: ubuntu-latest
  needs: build
    # use GH token instead as the EW API token
    EW_API_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    # ... normal build steps follow

This is useful for public repositories where you may not want to trigger builds with long-living tokens to incoming PRs.
