From flexible deployment options to data-powered security, there are lots of reasons teams love using GitHub Enterprise. With our latest Enterprise Server release, we’re helping teams build even better with some important updates to project management tools, security features, and the developer experience.
Repository templates give admins the ability to mark a repository they own or have write access to as a “template repository,” allowing anyone with access to the repository to generate a new repository with the same directory structure and files.
Issue transfer allows admins to move issues, along with the associated metadata, to a new repository and remove the previous issue—all in one step.
Assignable commenters allows maintainers with write access to assign an issue or pull request to anyone who has commented on it, regardless of their organization membership or repository permissions.
If an issue or pull request belongs to a milestone, the name of the milestone will now display on the project card and in the project card details sidebar. You can add or remove an issue or pull request from milestones using the details sidebar, and filter your project cards by milestones using the search bar.
Expanded capability with audit logs gives admins the ability to see changes to settings for organizations and repositories, see when PAT and SSH are being used to access information within an organization, and see when there’s a change in organization and repository membership.
If you create a user-owned repository, you will now be automatically watching it for updates. In addition, forks will no longer be automatically watched, even if you are granted push access.
You can now receive notifications for new conversations occurring on gists. Similar to issues and pull requests, you can opt out of these notifications at any time.
Organization admins can now choose to display their members’ full names in comments on private repositories.
