Managing organizations in your enterprise
Organizations are great for creating distinct groups of users within your company, such as divisions or groups working on similar projects. Public repositories that belong to an organization are accessible to users in other organizations, while private repositories are inaccessible to anyone but members of the organization.
You can choose to set up a new organization or convert an existing personal account into an organization.
Configuring visibility for organization membership→
You can set visibility for new organization members across your instance to public or private. You can also prevent members from changing their visibility from the default.
Preventing users from creating organizations→
You can prevent users from creating organizations on your GitHub Enterprise Server appliance.
Requiring two-factor authentication for an organization→
You can require organization members and outside collaborators to enable two-factor authentication for their personal accounts in an organization, making it harder for malicious actors to access an organization's repositories and settings.
Teams give organizations the ability to create groups of members and control access to repositories. Team members can be granted read, write, or admin permissions to specific repositories.
Adding people to teams→
Once a team has been created, organization admins can add users from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to the team and determine which repositories they have access to.
Removing users from teams and organizations→
If a member of your organization no longer requires access to certain repositories, you can remove them from the team that allows that access. If a member of your organization no longer requires access to any repositories owned by the organization, you can remove them from the organization.
Managing projects using JIRA→
You can integrate JIRA with GitHub Enterprise for project management.
Continuous integration using Jenkins→
You can automatically trigger build jobs on a Jenkins server when pushes are made to a repository in your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.
