About searching for packages
You can search for packages globally across all of GitHub Enterprise Server, or search for packages within a particular organization. For more information, see "About searching on GitHub."
You can only search for packages on GitHub Enterprise Server, not GitHub.com, even if GitHub Connect is enabled.
- This article contains links to example searches on the GitHub.com website, but you can use the same search filters with GitHub Enterprise Server. In the linked example searches, replace
github.comwith the hostname for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.
- For a list of search syntaxes that you can add to any search qualifier to further improve your results, see "Understanding the search syntax".
- Use quotations around multi-word search terms. For example, if you want to search for issues with the label "In progress," you'd search for
label:"in progress". Search is not case sensitive.
