In GitHub at IU, what are organizations, and how do I use them?

In GitHub, organizations are shared accounts that allow groups to collaborate across multiple projects. You can use organizations to simplify the management of group-owned repositories, expand on the GitHub permissions system, and help focus your GitHub workflow for large projects.

In Indiana University's enterprise installation of GitHub (GitHub:IU), organizations are free to create, and you may create as many as you need.

For more about using organizations to collaborate with groups, see Setting up and managing organizations and teams in the GitHub Help pages.

If you have questions or need help with GitHub:IU, email the IU GitHub support team.
