We discussed this separately, but for anybody else who comes across this,
GitHub Enterprise's API does not support services like Okta for
authenticating with the API for retrieving an API token. It requires a
username and password, according to their documentation and that error
message (which is coming from GitHub Enterprise).
Given that, you will need a standard user on GitHub Enterprise that you can
use for authentication. That user's credentials will *not* be stored. Only
the resulting token will be.
