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.

Who can use this feature

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. リポジトリに外部コラボレータを追加する際には、アクセスしてもらうリポジトリ内のフォークにもそのコラボレータを追加しなければなりません。

外部コラボレーターをプライベート リポジトリに追加すると、有料ライセンスのいずれかが使用されます。 詳細については、「企業の支払いについて」を参照してください。

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 your GitHub Enterprise Server instance. 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."
