REST API endpoints for packages

Use the REST API to interact with GitHub Packages.

About GitHub Packages

GitHub Packages supports a range of package managers for publishing packages. For more information, see "Introduction to GitHub Packages."

After you publish a package, you can use the REST API to manage the package in your GitHub repositories and organizations. For more information, see "Deleting and restoring a package."

To use the REST API to manage GitHub Packages, you must authenticate using a personal access token (classic).

  • To access package metadata, your token must include the read:packages scope.
  • To delete packages and package versions, your token must include the read:packages and delete:packages scopes.
  • To restore packages and package versions, your token must include the read:packages and write:packages scopes.

If your package is in a registry that supports granular permissions, then your token does not need the repo scope to access or manage this package. If your package is in a registry that only supports repository-scoped permissions, then your token must also include the repo scope since your package inherits permissions from a GitHub repository. For a list of registries that only support repository-scoped permissions, see "About permissions for GitHub Packages."

To access resources in an organization with SSO enabled, you must enable SSO for your personal access token (classic). For more information, see "Authorizing a personal access token for use with SAML single sign-on."

In this scenario, to restore the deleted package, you must delete the new package that uses the deleted package's namespace first.

If the package_type belongs to a GitHub Packages registry that supports granular permissions, the authenticated user must have admin permissions to the package. For the list of these registries, see "About permissions for GitHub Packages."

OAuth app tokens and personal access tokens (classic) need the read:packages and write:packages scopes to use this endpoint. If the package_type belongs to a GitHub Packages registry that only supports repository-scoped permissions, the repo scope is also required. For the list of these registries, see "About permissions for GitHub Packages."
