About per-user pricing

For organizations and enterprises, your bill begins with the number of licensed seats you choose.

About per-user pricing

The foundation of your bill is the number of standard licensed seats that you choose for your organization or enterprise.

GitHub 使用唯一的用户许可模型。 对于包含多个部署选项的企业产品,GitHub 会根据所有部署中的唯一用户数量来确定所使用的许可席位数。

每个用户只使用一个许可证,无论该用户使用多少 GitHub Enterprise Server 实例,或者该用户在 GitHub Enterprise Cloud 上是多少组织的成员。 此模型允许每个人使用多个 GitHub Enterprise 部署,而不产生额外费用。

To ensure the same user isn't consuming more than one license for multiple enterprise deployments, you can synchronize license usage between your GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub Enterprise Cloud environments. For more information, see "About licenses for GitHub Enterprise."

In addition to licensed seats, your bill may include other charges, such as GitHub Advanced Security. For more information, see "About billing for your enterprise."

People that consume a license

Each person consumes one license, and GitHub identifies individuals by primary email address.

GitHub bills for the following people.

  • Enterprise owners who are a member or owner of at least one organization in the enterprise
  • Organization members, including owners
  • Outside collaborators on private or internal repositories owned by your organization, excluding forks
  • Anyone with a pending invitation to become an organization owner or member
  • Anyone with a pending invitation to become an outside collaborator on private or internal repositories owned by your organization, excluding forks
  • Each user on any GitHub Enterprise Server instance that you deploy
  • Dormant users

GitHub does not bill for any of the following people.

  • Enterprise owners who are not a member or owner of at least one organization in the enterprise
  • Enterprise billing managers
  • Organization billing managers for individual organizations on GitHub Enterprise Cloud
  • Anyone with a pending invitation to become an enterprise or organization billing manager
  • Anyone with a pending invitation to become an outside collaborator on a public repository owned by your organization

Note: 如果被邀请者在 7 天内未接受邀请,则待处理的邀请将自动过期。 过期后,GitHub 将不再向你收取待处理邀请的费用。 如果标识提供者 (IdP) 的 SCIM 请求生成邀请,则邀请不会过期。

For more information, see "Roles in an enterprise" or "Roles in an organization."

GitHub counts each member or outside collaborator once for billing purposes, even if the user account has membership in multiple organizations in an enterprise or access to multiple repositories owned by your organization. For more information about outside collaborators, see "Adding outside collaborators to repositories in your organization."

Dormant users do occupy a seat license. For more information, see "Managing dormant users."
