Why am I seeing an “Item could not be created: unauthorized” error on the dashboard when trying to deploy the application?


When I'm trying to deploy the application which is connected to Github, I'm getting "Item could not be created: unauthorized" error message.


The error message you are getting typically indicates that the action you are trying to perform has been denied due to lack of authorization i.e. when GitHub tokens are invalid. Toggling the GitHub connection (reauthorizing GitHub access) should generate new tokens and should resolve the issue.
