We've recently moved some of the REST API documentation. If you can't find what you're looking for, you might try the new Branches, Collaborators, Commits, Deployments, GitHub Pages, Releases, Metrics, Webhooks REST API pages.

Collaborators

The collaborators API allows you to add, invite, and remove collaborators from a repository.

List repository collaborators

For organization-owned repositories, the list of collaborators includes outside collaborators, organization members that are direct collaborators, organization members with access through team memberships, organization members with access through default organization permissions, and organization owners.

Team members will include the members of child teams.

You must have push access to the repository in order to list collaborators.

Notes


Add a repository collaborator

This endpoint triggers notifications. Creating content too quickly using this endpoint may result in secondary rate limiting. See "Secondary rate limits" and "Dealing with secondary rate limits" for details.

For more information on permission levels, see "Repository permission levels for an organization". There are restrictions on which permissions can be granted to organization members when an organization base role is in place. In this case, the permission being given must be equal to or higher than the org base permission. Otherwise, the request will fail with:

Cannot assign {member} permission of {role name}

Note that, if you choose not to pass any parameters, you'll need to set Content-Length to zero when calling out to this endpoint. For more information, see "HTTP verbs."

The invitee will receive a notification that they have been invited to the repository, which they must accept or decline. They may do this via the notifications page, the email they receive, or by using the repository invitations API endpoints.

Rate limits

You are limited to sending 50 invitations to a repository per 24 hour period. Note there is no limit if you are inviting organization members to an organization repository.

put /repos/{owner}/{repo}/collaborators/{username}

Parameters

Name Type In Description
accept string header

Setting to application/vnd.github.v3+json is recommended.

owner string path
repo string path
username string path
permission string body

The permission to grant the collaborator. Only valid on organization-owned repositories. Can be one of:
* pull - can pull, but not push to or administer this repository.
* push - can pull and push, but not administer this repository.
* admin - can pull, push and administer this repository.
* maintain - Recommended for project managers who need to manage the repository without access to sensitive or destructive actions.
* triage - Recommended for contributors who need to proactively manage issues and pull requests without write access.
* custom repository role name - A custom repository role, if the owning organization has defined any.

Default: push
permissions string body

Invitations

The Repository Invitations API allows users or external services to invite other users to collaborate on a repo. The invited users (or external services on behalf of invited users) can choose to accept or decline the invitations.

Note that the repo:invite OAuth scope grants targeted access to invitations without also granting access to repository code, while the repo scope grants permission to code as well as invitations.

Invite a user to a repository

Use the API endpoint for adding a collaborator. For more information, see "Add a repository collaborator."

List repository invitations

When authenticating as a user with admin rights to a repository, this endpoint will list all currently open repository invitations.

get /repos/{owner}/{repo}/invitations

Parameters

Name Type In Description
accept string header

Setting to application/vnd.github.v3+json is recommended.

owner string path
repo string path
per_page integer query

Results per page (max 100)

Default: 30
page integer query

Page number of the results to fetch.

Default: 1
