Enforcing a policy for the use of GitHub Advanced Security in your enterprise's organizations
GitHub bills for Advanced Security on a per-committer basis. For more information, see "Managing billing for GitHub Advanced Security."
You can enforce a policy that controls whether repository administrators are allowed to enable features for Advanced Security in an organization's repositories. You can configure a policy for all organizations owned by your enterprise account, or for individual organizations that you choose.
Disallowing Advanced Security for an organization prevents repository administrators from enabling Advanced Security features for additional repositories, but does not disable the features for repositories where the features are already enabled. For more information about configuration of Advanced Security features, see "Managing security and analysis settings for your organization" or "Managing security and analysis settings for your repository."
Note: This policy only impacts repository administrators, specifically. Organization owners and security managers can always enable security features, regardless of how you set this policy. For more information, see "Roles in an organization."
