  1. Add your secret name as GH_TOKEN and paste your previously generated token in the secret input field and before clicking Add secret be sure to set the access to "All Repositories" or "Private and internal repositories" as applicable.

Given this is a privileged token, you may also want to consider selected repositories but this will create more overhead when onboarding a new application/repository.
