Adding people to teams

Once a team has been created, organization admins can add users from your enterprise to the team and determine which repositories they have access to.

Each team has its own individually defined access permissions for repositories owned by your organization.

  • Members with the owner role can add or remove existing organization members from all teams.
  • Members of teams that give admin permissions can only modify team membership and repositories for that team.
