User migrations

About the User migrations API

The Users migrations API is only available to authenticated account owners. For more information, see "Other authentication methods."

You can use this API to review, backup, or migrate your user data stored on GitHub Enterprise Cloud.com. For a list of migration data that you can download, see "Download a user migration archive."

To download an archive, you'll need to start a user migration first. Once the status of the migration is exported, you can download the migration.

Once you've created a migration archive, it will be available to download for seven days. But, you can delete the user migration archive sooner if you'd like. You can unlock your repository when the migration is exported to begin using your repository again or delete the repository if you no longer need the source data.

Lists all migrations a user has started.
