Git poll trigger authentication via Personal Access Token

I have configured Git:Poll trigger , which works fine when I select “Basic” - Authentication Method and provide username/password combination in the “shared configuration>Git Repository” settings , but this does not work if I want to switch to PAT and provide the token. Well first of all, if I switch to PAT, in the Git:Repository settings page, there is no obvious field to provide “token” information, I am providing it in the password field. Can this be done , i.e. is it possible to provide token authetication with Git Poll triggers? My repository is in GitHub.
