Obviously the end goal is to hit the repo with a PR. The problem is that you need token and a potential app would eventually need to use it to be able to PR (security, span issues)
I wasn't talking about published apps, but scripts on a devs machine or in a CI setup, which would use a dedicated token for that task. This token would not need to be distributed and neither should it be. The same as any token for an authenticated API. The API endpoint would not need to make a GH PR in the users name, just push a Yaml/JSON entry to the approval pipeline.

Ah yes, well that's sounds quite doable. We could even just use the GitHub API.
Haven't read the docs yet, but seems it needs some repo permissions https://docs.github.com/en/rest/referen ... ll-request
On the other hand, as you mentioned, we could provide an endpoint to do the form post so that devs can use it on their pipelines, but...

Can't the form be already POSTed via any http client? Maybe its that simple :D
