  2. Click on the “+” next to the Github service.
  3. Enter the Source Name.
  4. Enter the optional Source Description.  Text in the description is useful during search requests.

  7. Click Save to create the new source.
Steps to Set-up the Task
  1. Click on the “Projects” menu link in the left pane.
  2. If there are no projects listed, create a new project, otherwise go to step 3.
  3. Click on the project name that will contain the task. Click the “Add Task” button.
  4. Enter the Task Name.
  5. Enter the optional Task Description.  Text in the description is useful during search requests.
