Downloading your enterprise account's single sign-on recovery codes

To ensure that you can access GitHub Enterprise Cloud if your identity provider (IdP) is unavailable, you should download your enterprise account's single sign-on (SSO) recovery codes.

Who can use this feature

Enterprise owners can download the SSO recovery codes for the enterprise account.

In the event that your IdP is unavailable, you can use a recovery code to sign in and access your enterprise on GitHub.com. For more information, see "Accessing your enterprise account if your identity provider is unavailable."

If you did not save your recovery codes when you configured SSO, you can still access the codes from your enterprise's settings.
