Each user on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance consumes a seat on your license. GitHub bills monthly for the total number of seats consumed on your license.
For invoiced GitHub Enterprise customers, GitHub bills through an enterprise account on GitHub.com. Each invoice includes a single bill charge for all of your paid GitHub.com services and any GitHub Enterprise Server instances. For more information about licensing, usage, and invoices, see the following in the GitHub Enterprise Cloud documentation.
- "Viewing the subscription and usage for your enterprise account"
- "Managing invoices for your enterprise"
Administrators for your enterprise account on GitHub.com can access and manage billing for the enterprise. For more information, see "Roles in an enterprise" in the GitHub Enterprise Cloud documentation.
GitHub Enterprise offers two deployment options. In addition to GitHub Enterprise Server, you can use GitHub Enterprise Cloud to host development work for your enterprise on GitHub.com. For more information, see "GitHub's products."
You can allocate the user count for your GitHub Enterprise license to members of both 您的 GitHub Enterprise Server 实例 and an enterprise account on GitHub Enterprise Cloud. When you add a user to either environment, the user will consume one license. If a user has accounts in both environments, to consume only one license, the user's primary email address on 您的 GitHub Enterprise Server 实例 must be the same as the user's verified email address on GitHub.com. 您可以在两种环境之间同步许可数和使用情况。 For more information, see "Syncing license usage between GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub Enterprise Cloud."
