Enabling automatic user license sync for your enterprise

You can manage license usage across your GitHub Enterprise deployments by automatically syncing user licenses from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

Site administrators for GitHub Enterprise Server who are also owners of the connected GitHub Enterprise Cloud organization or enterprise account can enable automatic user license synchronization.

About license synchronization

After you enable license synchronization, you'll be able to view license usage for your entire enterprise across GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub Enterprise Cloud. GitHub Connect syncs license between GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub Enterprise Cloud weekly. For more information, see "Managing your license for GitHub Enterprise."

You can also manually upload GitHub Enterprise Server user license information to GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "Syncing license usage between GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub Enterprise Cloud."
