About GitHub Actions permissions for your enterprise

When you enable GitHub Actions on GitHub Enterprise Server, it is enabled for all organizations in your enterprise. You can choose to disable GitHub Actions for all organizations in your enterprise, or only allow specific organizations. You can also limit the use of public actions, so that people can only use local actions that exist in your enterprise.

Managing GitHub Actions permissions for your enterprise

  1. In the top-right corner of GitHub Enterprise Server, click your profile photo, then click Enterprise settings.

    "Enterprise settings" in drop-down menu for profile photo on GitHub Enterprise Server

    Policies tab in the enterprise account sidebar

  3. Under " Policies", click Actions.

  4. Under "Policies", select your options.

    You can choose which organizations in your enterprise can use GitHub Actions, and you can restrict access to public actions.

    Note: To enable access to public actions, you must first configure your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to connect to GitHub Marketplace. For more information, see "Enabling automatic access to GitHub.com actions using GitHub Connect."
