Showing your private contributions and achievements on your profile

Your GitHub Enterprise Server profile shows a graph of your repository contributions over the past year. You can choose to show anonymized activity from private and internal repositories in addition to the activity from public repositories.

If you publicize your private contributions, people without access to the private repositories you work in won't be able to see the details of your private contributions. Instead, they'll see the number of private contributions you made on any given day. Your public contributions will include detailed information. For more information, see "Viewing contributions on your profile."

Note: On GitHub Enterprise Server, public contributions on your profile are visible only to other users of your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.

Changing the visibility of your private contributions

You can choose to publicize your private contributions, which allows visitors to your profile to see private contribution counts, without further details.

If you choose to hide your private contributions, visitors will only see your public contributions.
