Adding a collaborator to a repository security advisory

You can add other users or teams to collaborate on a security advisory with you.

People with admin permissions to a security advisory can add collaborators to the security advisory.

Note: This article applies to editing repository-level advisories as a repository owner.

Users who are not repository owners can contribute to global security advisories in the GitHub Advisory Database at github.com/advisories. Edits to global advisories will not change or affect how the advisory appears on the repository. For more information, see "Editing security advisories in the GitHub Advisory Database."

Adding a collaborator to a security advisory

Collaborators have write permissions to the security advisory. For more information, see "Permission levels for repository security advisories."

If you remove a user from a repository or organization and the user is also a collaborator on a security advisory, the user will still have access to the security advisory. For more information about removing a collaborator on a security advisory, see "Removing a collaborator from a repository security advisory."
