Creating a default community health file

You can create default community health files, such as CONTRIBUTING and CODE_OF_CONDUCT. Default files will be used for any public repository owned by the account that does not contain its own file of that type.

About default community health files

You can add default community health files to the root of a public repository called .github that is owned by an organization or user account.

GitHub Enterprise will use and display default files for any public repository owned by the account that does not have its own file of that type in any of the following places:

  • the root of the repository
  • the .github folder
  • the docs folder

For example, anyone who creates an issue or pull request in a public repository that does not have its own CONTRIBUTING file will see a link to the default CONTRIBUTING file. If a repository has any files in its own .github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE folder, including issue templates or a config.yml file, none of the contents of the default .github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE folder will be used.

Default files are not included in clones, packages, or downloads of individual repositories because they are stored only in the .github repository.

Supported file types

You can create defaults in your organization or user account for the following community health files:

Community health fileDescription
CONTRIBUTING.mdA CONTRIBUTING file communicates how people should contribute to your project. For more information, see "Setting guidelines for repository contributors."
Issue and pull request templates and config.ymlIssue and pull request templates customize and standardize the information you'd like contributors to include when they open issues and pull requests in your repository. For more information, see "About issue and pull request templates."
SUPPORT.mdA SUPPORT file lets people know about ways to get help with your project. For more information, see "Adding support resources to your project."

You cannot create a default license file. License files must be added to individual repositories so the file will be included when a project is cloned, packaged, or downloaded.
