GitHub: Is there a way to programmatically file an issue?

Is there an API for filing a GitHub issue?

When I have an unexpected issue I would like to offer the user an option to automatically report an issue.

  • Preparing a git commit messaging before committing?
  • How to manage backups and monitor Git with a central repository?
  • No data written: Not enough storage - Git on TFS 2015
  • TortoiseGit - Multiple GitHub repositories with different key pairs each
  • GIT: forgot to commit and have made new changes. How to undo new changes, commit then redo changes?
  • Git undo changes in some files
  • git diff two files on same branch, same commit
  • git .ignore not working in a directory
  • Cloning a private repo using HTTPS with gitpython
  • How to reset develop branch on remote to master
  • MSSCCI compliant git client
  • web.config and app.config machine-specific settings in git
  • One Solution collect form web for “GitHub: Is there a way to programmatically file an issue?”

    Here is the GitHub API page which details how to programatically create an issue:

    Example, from the docs:

    Send a POST request to /repos/:owner/:repo/issues with JSON like the following:

      "title": "Found a bug",
      "body": "I'm having a problem with this.",
      "assignee": "octocat",
      "milestone": 1,
      "labels": [

    You can also edit issues programatically by sending a PATCH request to /repos/:owner/:repo/issues/:number
