Adding outside collaborators to repositories in your organization

You can allow people who aren't members of your organization to access repositories that your organization owns.

People with admin access to a repository can add an outside collaborator to the repository.

About outside collaborators

An outside collaborator is a person who is not a member of your organization, but has access to one or more of your organization's repositories. You can choose the level of access to grant for each outside collaborator. Cuando agregas un colaborador externo a un repositorio, también es necesario que lo agregues en cualquier bifurcación del repositorio al que le quieras dar acceso.

El agregar a un colaborador externo a un repositorio privado utilizará una de tus licencias de pago. Para obtener más información, consulta la sección "Acerca de la facturación para tu empresa".

An organization owner can restrict the ability to invite collaborators. For more information, see "Setting permissions for adding outside collaborators."

Before you can add someone as an outside collaborator on a repository, the person must have a personal account on tu instancia de GitHub Enterprise Server. If your enterprise uses an external authentication system such as SAML or LDAP, the person you want to add must sign in through that system to create an account. If the person does not have access to the authentication system and built-in authentication is enabled for your enterprise, a site administrator can create an account for the person. For more information, see "Configuring built-in authentication."

If your organization requires two-factor authentication, all outside collaborators must enable two-factor authentication before accepting your invitation to collaborate on a repository. For more information, see "Requiring two-factor authentication in your organization."
