Installing a GitHub App from a third party

You can install GitHub Apps directly from the app owner to use on your personal account or organizations.

You cannot install third-party GitHub Apps on organizations owned by your instance. If you want to use the functionality of a third-party GitHub App, you can contact the app developer about making the GitHub App available for GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see "Making your GitHub App available for GitHub Enterprise Server."

For more information about installing GitHub Apps that you own, see "Installing your own GitHub App."
