Under Memeber Privileges for my organization, in the grouping Repository Creation, the option for Private repositories is grayed out.
I wish to enable this option so that only Private repos can be created. My organization is already marked private. We have a 5 seat paid account, which shows under billing that we can create unlimited private repositories.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
This is a ridiculous restriction. We are already paying for Private repos, and all I want to do is make sure one of my contractors doesn't accidentally mark a repo as public.
I agree this is ridiculous. If you are paying for private repos, you should be able to ensure no one makes a mistake and changes a repo to be public! This is not an "enterprise" feature, it is a normal feature.
Source for the policy:
To allow members to create private repositories only, your organization must use GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "About repository visibility."
I agree this seems an excessive restriction, and common use case for non-enterprise users to not want to allow their employees/contractors to inadvertantly make a repo public and leak data/code.
What is the best forum to respectfully request this feature be unlocked for GitHub Team customers?
