Groups of people can collaborate across many projects at the same time in organization accounts.
After you create your organization, you can add people as members of the organization. You can also remove members of the organization, and reinstate former members.
A person's role in your organization defines their level of access to your organization, its settings, and your data. You can make people owners, members, or billing managers for your organization, or you can give them team maintainer permissions.
You can group organization members into teams that reflect your company or group's structure with cascading access permissions and mentions.
Within an organization, your team can work together across projects using team discussions.
Organization owners can manage individual and team access to the organization's repositories. Team maintainers can also manage a team's repository access.
As an organization owner or project board admin, you can give organization members, teams, and outside collaborators different levels of access to project boards owned by your organization.
As an organization owner, you can allow individual organization members to manage GitHub Apps in your organization.
Organization administrators can change several settings, including the names of repositories that belong to the organization and Owners team membership. In addition, organization admins can delete the organization and all of its repositories.
Organization owners have several features to help them keep their projects and data secure. If you're the owner of an organization, you should regularly review your organization's audit log, member 2FA status, and application settings to ensure that no unauthorized or malicious activity has occurred.
You can add an SSH certificate authority (CA) to your organization and allow members to access the organization's repositories over Git using keys signed by the SSH CA.
If your organization was created after September 2015, your organization includes improved organization permissions by default. Organizations created before September 2015 may need to migrate older Owners and Admin teams to the improved organization permissions model.
