Note: GitHub Actions was available for GitHub Enterprise Server 2.22 as a limited beta. The beta has ended. GitHub Actions is now generally available in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0 or later. For more information, see the GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0 release notes.
GitHub Actions helps members of your enterprise automate software development workflows on GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see "Understanding GitHub Actions."
If you enable GitHub Actions, any organization on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance can use GitHub Actions. You can enforce policies to control how members of your enterprise on GitHub Enterprise Server use GitHub Actions. By default, organization owners can manage how members use GitHub Actions. For more information, see "Disabling or limiting GitHub Actions for your organization."
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.
In the top-right corner of GitHub Enterprise Server, click your profile photo, then click Enterprise settings.
In the enterprise sidebar, click Policies.
Under " Policies", click Actions.
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."
You can enforce policies to control how GitHub Actions behaves for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance when members of your enterprise run workflows from forks.
