Unblocking a user from your organization

Organization owners can unblock a user who was previously blocked, restoring their access to the organization's repositories.

After unblocking a user from your organization, they'll be able to contribute to your organization's repositories.

If you selected a specific amount of time to block the user, they will be automatically unblocked when that period of time ends. For more information, see "Blocking a user from your organization."

Tip: Any settings that were removed when you blocked the user from your organization, such as collaborator status, stars, and watches, will not be restored when you unblock the user.
