I’m following the instructions here to generate a user token associated with a machine user:
On GitHub, I’ve added a Machine User as an outside collaborator with read access to all of our relevant repositories, but from CircleCI (when logged in as the machine user) I cannot load either the “add projects” page or the project-level settings page (from
https://app.circleci.com/github/MY_ORG/MY_REPO/pipelines and clicking on “Settings”) – in both cases, it just displays a “Something doesn’t look right” error. In the case of the settings page, it briefly displays something resembling the settings panel before displaying the error.
I can think of two possible complications:
- The machine user has an email address that is derived from another account’s email address – for example, if my email was
firstname.lastname@example.org, the machine user would be something like
- The machine user is only an “outside collaborator” on this project, not a direct collaborator or team member.
Can anyone help diagnose and resolve this?
