From collaborative code review to data-powered security, GitHub is where teams of all sizes come to build and ship their best products. With our recent announcement of a unified GitHub Enterprise, there are even more ways for organizations that need the flexibility to deploy in cloud and self-hosted architectures to use GitHub. Teams can now access both Enterprise Cloud and Enterprise Server instances with one per-seat price.
Today, we’re introducing new features to help developers save time and simplify team and repository administration as part of the new GitHub Enterprise. Get the latest Enterprise Server release to start using these new features with your team.
Here are some new ways developers can be even more productive and collaborative with GitHub Enterprise:
Force pushing is a popular workflow for many developers—and mandated in some projects and organizations. A timeline event for force pushes helps project maintainers track what other collaborators are doing. Some teams force push to clean up commits before merging a pull request, and we now give you more visibility into that workflow.
Building on support for multiple issue templates in a project, maintainers can now add more template automation in the form of a default title, labels, and assignees.
Review comments now indicate if they’re outdated from more recent code changes and no longer auto-collapse. Collaborators only see their conversations as outdated when the line of code that started the conversation has changed.
Submitting a pull request review will update the merge button based on the result of that review—no need to refresh the page.
The owner dropdown is now highlighted first on the “Create a new repository” page, so it’s top of mind when you publish a new repository. This helps every user create their repository for themselves or for their organization as they intended without having to change ownership later or start over.
If you manage your GitHub deployment, we’ve made the administration experience easier with cohesive administration across multiple organizations, granular permission controls, and greater visibility.
GitHub Enterprise administrators and organization owners looking for more control over repository creation can now set policies for their members. Permission to create additional repositories, whether public or private, can be defined at the instance and organization level.
Organization owners can now decide if they want to allow other organization members to send invitations to external collaborators. After enabling this setting, organization members will have to request to have a new collaborator added by an organization owner.
