Installation access token creation requests now respect IP allow list settings

If your organization uses IP allow lists to restrict access, any API requests made with an installation access token for a GitHub App installed on your organization already respects those settings.

GitHub is extending this so that the API request to create the installation access token will also respect your organization's allowed IP addresses.

GitHub Advanced Security customers can now specify custom patterns for use in private repo secret scanning. When a new pattern is specified, secret scanning searches a repository's entire git history for it, as well as any new commits.

User defined patterns are in beta on cloud and will be available on GHES next quarter. They can be defined at the repository and organization level.
