Packages

With the GitHub Packages API, you can manage packages for your GitHub repositories and organizations.

About the GitHub Packages API

The GitHub Packages API enables you to manage packages using the REST API. To learn more about restoring or deleting packages, see "Restoring and deleting packages."

To use this API, you must authenticate using a personal access token (classic).

  • To access package metadata, your token must include the read:packages scope.
  • To delete packages and package versions, your token must include the read:packages and delete:packages scopes.
  • To restore packages and package versions, your token must include the read:packages and write:packages scopes.

If your package_type is npm, maven, rubygems, or nuget, then your token must also include the repo scope since your package inherits permissions from a GitHub repository. If your package is in the Container registry, then your package_type is container and your token does not need the repo scope to access or manage this package_type. container packages offer granular permissions separate from a repository. For more information, see "About permissions for GitHub Packages."

If you want to use the GitHub Packages API to access resources in an organization with SSO enabled, then you must enable SSO for your personal access token (classic). For more information, see "Authorizing a personal access token for use with SAML single sign-on."

List packages for an organization

Lists all packages in an organization readable by the user.

To use this endpoint, you must authenticate using an access token with the packages:read scope. If package_type is not container, your token must also include the repo scope.
