Dockstore GitHub App
GitHub apps are a GitHub feature used to improve the interaction between external applications and GitHub. Users can grant a GitHub app specific permissions on the repos and/or organizations of their choosing.

It is our preferred method for registration, so you can find a breakdown of that process on the respective pages for tool registration, workflow registration, and service registration.
