  2. Go to and sign in
  3. Under Add a third party account, click Sign in with GitHub
    Sign in options
  4. Authorize the iDEC Team Portal app
    Take note that:
    a. App is created by idechq-bot
    b. App redirects to
    Authorize App
  5. Check that your GitHub account is now connected to your registered account
    GitHub account added
  6. Go to the Team tab
  7. Click the green GitHub icon button for your team
    Join repository: team
  8. You will be redirected to a new page. Here, check that your team information is correct Join repository: repo info
  9. At the bottom of the page, the system should have detected your connected GitHub username(s)
  10. Pick the username you want to add, if you connected multiple GitHub accounts
  11. Click on the submit button
  12. You should see 3 success messages near the top of the page if you are successfully invited Join repository: success
  13. Check your email (the one registered with GitHub) and look for an invitation to join the repository

  15. You can now manage your wiki repository with maintain permission


You will not be able to join your assigned wiki repository when wiki-freeze commences.

Error due to double connections

You cannot connect the same GitHub account more than once to the iDEC Team Portal. If you run into a "Social Login" failure page, it could be due to your attempt to connect your GitHub account again. A potential fix for this issue, is to login to your GitHub account and visit the settings, applications configuration. Under Authorized OAuth Apps, choose iDEC Team Portal, and then Revoke access. This will disconnect your GitHub account with the Team Portal and you can try to reconnect again.
