Can I create accounts for people in my organization?

While you can add users to an organization you've created, you can't create personal user accounts on behalf of another person.

Were you able to find what you were looking for?

Because you access an organization by logging in to a personal account, each of your team members needs a personal account. Once you have user names for each person you'd like to add to your organization, you can add them to teams.

Adding users to your organization

  1. Provide each person instructions to create a personal account.
  2. Ask for the username of each person you want to give organization membership to.
  3. Invite the new personal accounts to join your organization. Use organization roles and repository permissions to limit the access of each account.
