You can manage team and organization membership on GitHub Enterprise Cloud through your identity provider (IdP) by connecting IdP groups with teams within your enterprise with managed users.

Who can use this feature?

To manage users in your enterprise with your identity provider, your enterprise must be enabled for Enterprise Managed Users, which is available with GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "About Enterprise Managed Users."

About team management with Enterprise Managed Users

With Enterprise Managed Users, you can manage team and organization membership within your enterprise through your IdP by connecting teams on GitHub.com with groups on your IdP. When you connect a team in one of your enterprise's organizations to an IdP group, changes to membership from the IdP group are reflected in your enterprise automatically, reducing the need for manual updates and custom scripts.

When a change to an IdP group or a new team connection results in a managed user account joining a team in an organization they were not already a member of, the managed user account will automatically be added to the organization. When you disconnect a group from a team, users who became members of the organization via team membership are removed from the organization if they are not assigned membership in the organization by any other means.

Note: Organization owners can also add managed user accounts to organizations manually, as long as the accounts have already been provisioned via SCIM.

When group membership changes on your IdP, your IdP sends a SCIM request with the changes to GitHub.com according to the schedule determined by your IdP, so change may not be immediate. Any requests that change team or organization membership will register in the audit log as changes made by the account used to configure user provisioning.

GitHub also runs a reconciliation job once per day, which synchronizes team membership with IdP group membership that is stored on GitHub, based on information previously sent from the IdP via SCIM. If this job finds that a user is a member of an IdP group in the enterprise, but they are not a member of the mapped team or its organization, the job will attempt to add the user to the organization and team.

Teams connected to IdP groups cannot be parents of other teams nor a child of another team. If the team you want to connect to an IdP group is a parent or child team, we recommend creating a new team or removing the nested relationships that make your team a parent team.

To manage repository access for any team in your enterprise, including teams connected to an IdP group, you must make changes on GitHub.com. For more information, see "Managing team access to an organization repository".

Requirements for connecting IdP groups with teams

Before you can connect an IdP group with a team on GitHub, you must assign the group to the GitHub Enterprise Managed User application in your IdP. For more information, see "Configuring SCIM provisioning for Enterprise Managed Users."

You can connect a team in your enterprise to one IdP group. You can assign the same IdP group to multiple teams in your enterprise.

If you are connecting an existing team to an IdP group, you must first remove any members that were added manually. After you connect a team in your enterprise to an IdP group, your IdP administrator must make team membership changes through the identity provider. You cannot manage team membership on GitHub.com.

If you use Microsoft Entra ID (previously known as Azure AD) as your IdP, you can only connect a team to a security group. Nested group memberships and Microsoft 365 groups are not supported.

Managing the connection between an existing team and an IdP group
