Configuring visibility for organization membership

You can set visibility for new organization members across your enterprise to public or private. You can also prevent members from changing their visibility from the default.

You can also enforce your default setting on all current organization members in your instance using a command-line utility. For example, if you'd like to require every organization member's visibility to be public, you can set the default to public and enforce the default for all new members in the admin settings, and then use the command-line utility to enforce the public setting on existing members.

  1. Navigate to your enterprise account by visiting https://HOSTNAME/enterprises/ENTERPRISE-NAME, replacing HOSTNAME with your instance's hostname and ENTERPRISE-NAME with your enterprise account's name.
  1. In the enterprise account sidebar, click Settings. Settings tab in the enterprise account sidebar

  2. Under " Settings", click Options. Options tab in the enterprise account settings sidebar

  3. Under "Default organization membership visibility", use the drop-down menu, and click Private or Public. Drop-down menu with option to configure default organization membership visibility as public or private

  4. Optionally, to prevent members from changing their membership visibility from the default, select Enforce on organization members. Checkbox to enforce the default setting on all members

  5. If you'd like to enforce your new visibility setting on all existing members, use the ghe-org-membership-update command-line utility. For more information, see "Command-line utilities."
