I am a trial noob to appveyor, and administrator of a small startup.
I have successfully configured appveyor to build one of our private github repos, using my person github account.

Now, it time to enable appveyor to build our repos for my organisation, and get myself personal github account out of the way.
I am little confused about how to setup up my appveyor account and how to provide github permissions to my organisations repos, without using my own account to provide the access.

I other words, I think I want to define a team in appveyor which allows others on the team to administer the builds. AND I want appveyor to pull our private github repos without using my github account.

Do we have a short guide on how to achieve this?

    You can just setup a new GitHub user, so-called "build bot" for accessing organizational repos - GitHub TOCs allow that.

    Then on page authorize AppVeyor to use that GitHub user.
