Click Add GitHub repositories, organizations near the top of the dashboard.
GitHub will give you a choice to install the application on all repositories, which includes repositories to be created in the future, or to select specific repositories.

Install manually, when the other methods are not suitable
Step 3. Repository Setup
The goal of this step is to make sure everything is set up correctly.
If you are familiar with Nix, set up your own git repository
Otherwise verify your agent setup with a minimal git repository
