About organizations

Organizations are shared accounts where businesses and open-source projects can collaborate across many projects at once, with sophisticated security and administrative features.

About organizations

Tu equipo puede colaborar en GitHub Enterprise Server utilizando una cuenta de organización que sirva como contenedor para tu trabajo compartido y proporcione al trabajo un nombre y marca únicos.

Cad apersona que utiliza GitHub siempre inicia sesión en una cuenta personal y varias de estas cuentas personales pueden colaborar en proyectos compartidos si se unen a la misma cuenta organizacional. Un subconjunto de estas cuentas personales puede obtener el rol de propietario de la organización, el cual permite a estas personas administrar el acceso a los recursos de la organización de forma granular, utilizando características administrativas y de seguridad sofisticadas. For more information about account types, see "Types of GitHub accounts."

You can invite an unlimited number of people to join your organization, then give these organization members a variety of roles that grant different levels of access to the organization and its data. For more information, see "Roles in an organization."

In addition to managing access to the organization itself, you can separately manage access to your organization's repositories, project boards, and apps. For more information, see "Repository roles for an organization", "Project board permissions for an organization", and "Managing access to your organization's apps."

To simplify access management and enhance collaboration, you can create nested teams that reflect your group's structure, with cascading access permissions and mentions. For more information, see "About teams."

You can configure the organization to meet the unique needs of your group by managing settings, such as restricting the types of repositories that members can create. For more information, see "Managing organization settings."

To harden your organization's security, you can enforce security requirements and review the organization's audit log. For more information, see "Keeping your organization secure."

Los proyectos mantenidos y admnistrados por un solo propietario de organización pueden llegar a ser inaccesibles con facilidad si no se puede contactar a dicho propietario. Te recomendamos que tu organización tenga por lo menos dos personas con permisos de propietario para garantizar que nadie tendrá acceso al proyecto. For more information, see "Maintaining ownership continuity for your organization."

Organizations and enterprise accounts

Enterprise owners can set policy for all organizations in the enterprise account or allow organization owners to set the policy at the organization level. Organization owners cannot change settings enforced for your organization at the enterprise account level. If you have questions about a policy or setting for your organization, contact the owner of your enterprise account.
