The enterprise account on GitHub AE allows you to manage the organizations owned by your enterprise.
Organizations are shared accounts where enterprise members can collaborate across many projects at once. Organization owners can manage access to the organization's data and projects with sophisticated security and administrative features. For more information, see "About organizations."
Your enterprise account allows you to manage and enforce policies for all the organizations owned by the enterprise. Each enterprise policy controls the options available for a policy at the organization level. You can choose to not enforce a policy, which allows organization owners to configure the policy for the organization, or you can choose from a set of options to enforce for all organizations owned by your enterprise. For more information, see "About enterprise policies."
From your enterprise account on GitHub AE, administrators can view enterprise membership, manage their own membership in organizations owned by the enterprise, and manage the following for the enterprise on GitHub AE.
- Security (single sign-on, IP allow lists, SSH certificate authorities, two-factor authentication)
- Enterprise policies for organizations owned by the enterprise account
The bill for your enterprise account includes the monthly cost for each member of your enterprise. The bill includes additional paid services for your enterprise and usage for GitHub Advanced Security.
