How do we access a file in github repo inside our azure databricks notebook
We have a requirement where we need to access a file hosted on our github private repo in our Azure Databricks notebook. Currently we are doing it using curl command using the Personal Access Token of a user.
curl -H 'Authorization: token INSERTACCESSTOKENHERE' -H 'Accept: application/vnd.github.v3.raw' -O -L https://api.github.com/repos/*owner*/*repo*/contents/*path*
Is there a way we can avoid the use of PAT and use deploy keys or anything?

Be aware that you need a cluster with a databricks version 8.4+ (or 9.1+?)
You can also test what is your current working directory by executing the following command.
If you have correctly integrated the repo then your result should be something like:
otherwise it will be something like:
