Managing dormant users

A user account is considered to be dormant if it has not been active for 90 days.

"Activity" includes, but is not limited to:

  • Signing in to GitHub Enterprise Cloud.
  • Commenting on issues and pull requests.
  • Creating, deleting, watching, and starring repositories.
  • Pushing commits.
  • Accessing resources by using a personal access token or SSH key.

Note: The Dormant Users report is currently in private beta so admins only have access to this feature with a special invite. To join the private beta, receive support, or address your questions, contact the GitHub representative who helps manage your account.
