Add outside collaborators to a team without giving them acess to other repos in an organization?

Hi,

 

we are using Github Teams in our organization and I wanted to add a user as an outside collaborator to a team. However, whenever I add the user to a team, he will become a member of the organisation.

And If I change the user to outside collaborators he will be removed from the team.

Is it possible to create a team of outside collaborators or do I have to manually add the users for the repos?


I want to have the following hierachy

 

       Organization

      |                 |

  Private Project Repo 1     Private  Project Repo 2 

 

I want to create a team together with outside collaborators (e.g. external developers) which only has access to Repo 2 and does not see the other repositories.

Is this somehow possible? I did not find a way.

Regards

Teams are explicitly for members of an organization. Outside collaborators cannot be on organization teams and must be added to each repository manually.

 

I hope that helps.
