As an enterprise owner, you can allow end users to send anonymized contribution counts for their work from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to their GitHub.com contribution graph.
After you enable GitHub Connect and enable unified contributions in both environments, end users on your enterprise account can connect to their GitHub.com accounts and send contribution counts from GitHub Enterprise Server to GitHub.com. GitHub Enterprise Server sends updates hourly. For more information, see "Sending enterprise contributions to your GitHub.com profile."
If the enterprise owner disables the functionality or developers opt out of the connection, the GitHub Enterprise Server contribution counts will be deleted on GitHub.com. If the developer reconnects their profiles after disabling them, the contribution counts for the past 90 days are restored.
GitHub Enterprise Server only sends the contribution count and source (GitHub Enterprise Server) for connected users. It does not send any information about the contribution or how it was made.
Before enabling unified contributions on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, you must connect your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to GitHub.com. For more information, see "Connecting your enterprise account to GitHub.com."
