About custom organization roles

You can have more granular control over the access you grant to your organization's settings by creating custom organization roles. A custom organization role is a way to grant an organization member the ability to administer certain subsets of settings without granting full administrative control of the organization and its repositories. For example, you could create a role that contains the "View organization audit log" permission. For more information, see "About custom organization roles."

If you are an organization owner or have a custom role with the "View organization roles" or "Manage custom organization roles" permissions, you can view custom roles for the organization. To find the "Custom roles" page, you can follow the first steps in "Creating a custom role." The exact steps will vary depending on which other settings pages you have access to.

Organization owners and users with the "Manage custom organization roles" permission can create a custom organization role. You can create up to 10 custom roles in an organization.
