Once a team has been created, organization admins can add users from your GitHub Enterprise instance 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 of the organization's Owners team can add or remove existing organization members from all teams. Only members of the Owners team can add or remove existing organization members from teams with read and write permissions.

Members of teams that give admin permissions can only modify team membership and repositories for that team.
