Deleting an organization account

You can delete your organization account on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance at any time.

About deletion of your organization account

Deleting your organization account removes all repositories, forks of private repositories, wikis, issues, pull requests, and project or organization pages.

If the account namespace includes any packages or container images stored in a GitHub Packages registry, GitHub deletes the packages and container images when you delete your account. By deleting your account, you may break projects that depend on these packages and images.

Backing up your organization content

Before you delete your organization, make sure you have a copy of all repositories, wikis, issues, and project boards from the account.

Note: If necessary, a site administrator for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance may be able to partially restore a deleted organization. For more information, see "Restoring a deleted organization."
