Enabling unified contributions for your enterprise

You can allow users to include anonymized contribution counts for their work on your enterprise in their contribution graphs on GitHub.com.

Enterprise owners can enable unified contributions between your enterprise and GitHub.com.

Note: GitHub Connect for GitHub AE is currently in beta and subject to change.

About unified contributions

As an enterprise owner, you can allow end users to send anonymized contribution counts for their work from your enterprise to their GitHub.com contribution graph.

After you enable unified contributions, before individual users can send contribution counts from your enterprise to GitHub.com, each user must also connect their user account on GitHub AE with a personal account on GitHub.com. For more information, see "Sending enterprise contributions to your GitHub.com profile."

GitHub AE sends updates hourly.

If the enterprise owner disables the functionality or individual users opt out of the connection, the contribution counts from GitHub AE will be deleted on GitHub.com. If the user reconnects their profiles after disabling them, the contribution counts for the past 90 days are restored.

GitHub AE only sends the contribution count and source (GitHub AE) for connected users. It does not send any information about the contribution or how it was made.

Before enabling unified contributions on your enterprise, you must enable GitHub Connect. For more information, see "Managing GitHub Connect."
