What does 'Some repos require GitHub administrator privileges' mean?

Why do I need admin privileges on GitHub repos?

If you see the following warning, it means that we need admin access to your repositories in order to set up a webhook:


This webhook allows us to test your pull requests and ensures that we always have an accurate picture of the vulnerable state of your project. 

To resolve this issue you need to ask an administrator to grant you admin access to the repo via the repo's settings page (Collaboration & teams section).

If this isn't possible, email support@snyk.io and we can look into other ways to work around this.
