Configure Github Oauth on Jenkins25 Sep 2015
We are configuring a Jenkins instance on AWS and would like to use Github Oauth for user authentication and privileges.
A high level overview of our Jenkins setup. The Jenkins EC2 instance is in a private VPC subnet with no public IP address. We have a public ELB that forwards traffic to port 8080 of the Jenkins instance. Lets go through the steps to configure Github Oath on a new Jenkins instance.

- Click “Register new application”.
- Fill out registration form. Make sure to enter http://jenkins.dns.address/securityRealm/finishLogin for Authorization Calback URL.
