Managing the forking policy for your organization

You can allow or prevent the forking of any private and internal repositories owned by your organization.

Organization owners can manage the forking policy for an organization.

By default, new organizations are configured to disallow the forking of private and internal repositories.

If you allow forking of private and internal repositories at the organization level, you can also configure the ability to fork a specific private or internal repository. For more information, see "Managing the forking policy for your repository."
