Once you create an organization, you manage the organization's repository access with teams. Each team can have different repository access permissions.
Repository access teams
There are four types of repository access teams available in an organization:
- Owners team
- Admin access teams
- Write access teams
- Read access teams
Note: There is no team permission that allows access to issues, but blocks read access to repositories. However, you can create a second repository that contains only issues, and store your code repository in a separate, restricted repository.
For information on managing teams, see "Adding people to teams in an organization."

Members of an organization's Owners team are the only members of the organization who can view and edit membership of all teams under the organization. Admin access team members can add and remove members from their admin team, but cannot perform these actions for other teams in the organization.
