GitHub Enterprise supports the same powerful API available on GitHub.com as well as its own set of API endpoints.
The complete documentation for the GitHub Enterprise 2.8 API is available at https://developer.github.com/enterprise/2.8/v3/. With the API, you can automate many administrative tasks. Some examples include:
- Perform changes to the Management Console
- Collect statistics about your instance
- Configure LDAP sync
We also provide documentation for several previous releases if you have not yet had a chance to upgrade to GitHub Enterprise 2.8.
