Only pull request authors can give upstream repository maintainers, or those with push access to the upstream repository, permission to make commits to their pull request's compare branch in a user-owned fork. To learn more about upstream repositories, see "About forks."
Pull request authors can give these permissions when they initially create a pull request from a user-owned fork or after they create the pull request. For more information, see "Creating a pull request from a fork."
You can set commit permissions when you first create a pull request from a fork. For more information, see "Creating a pull request from a fork." Additionally, you can modify an existing pull request to let repository maintainers make commits to your branch.
- On GitHub Enterprise, navigate to the main page of the upstream repository of your pull request.
- Under the upstream repository name, click Pull requests.
- In the list of pull requests, navigate to the pull request that you'd like to allow commits on.
- On user-owned forks, if you do not want to allow anyone with push access to the upstream repository to make changes to your pull request, unselect Allow edits from maintainers.
