Enterprise owners can create new organizations within an enterprise account's settings.

To add an organization to your enterprise account, you must create the organization from within the enterprise account settings. You cannot transfer existing organizations into an enterprise account.

Creating an organization in your enterprise account

New organizations you create within your enterprise account settings are included in your enterprise account's GitHub Enterprise Cloud subscription. For more information on collaborating in organizations, see "Setting up and managing organizations and teams."

Enterprise owners who create an organization owned by the enterprise account automatically become organization owners. For more information about organization owners, see "Permission levels for an organization."
