Organization owners can reinstate a former member of an organization.

About member reinstatement

If a user is removed from your organization in one of the following ways, the user's access privileges and settings are saved for three months.

You can restore the user's privileges if you add them back to the organization within that time frame.

Note: Any users removed due to SAML SSO enforcement can rejoin your organization by authenticating via SAML single sign-on. You do not need to invite these users to rejoin. Instead, the user can sign into their personal account, navigate to the organization, and click the banner to authenticate via SAML single sign-on.

When you reinstate a former organization member, you can restore:

  • The user's role in the organization
  • Any private forks of repositories owned by the organization
  • Membership in the organization's teams
  • Previous access and permissions for the organization's repositories
  • Stars for organization repositories
  • Issue assignments in the organization
  • Repository subscriptions (notification settings for watching, not watching, or ignoring a repository's activity)
