About unified contributions

As an enterprise owner, you can allow end users to send anonymized contribution counts for their work from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to their contribution graph.

After you enable unified contributions, before individual users can send contribution counts from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to, each user must also connect their user account on GitHub Enterprise Server with a personal account on For more information, see "Sending enterprise contributions to your profile."

GitHub Enterprise Server sends updates hourly.

If the enterprise owner disables the functionality or individual users opt out of the connection, the contribution counts from GitHub Enterprise Server will be deleted on If the user reconnects their profiles after disabling them, the contribution counts for the past 90 days are restored.
