Azure Active Directory team synchronization, now available with Enterprise Cloud

Now you can sync groups across Azure Active Directory and GitHub teams with team synchronization for GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

Azure Active Directory team synchronization, now available with Enterprise Cloud
Author

On May 6, we announced the beta for team synchronization, a new way for teams to manage GitHub at scale and sync groups across Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and GitHub teams. This feature is now available to all GitHub Enterprise Cloud customers.

Teams

Teams are groups of organization members that reflect your company or group’s structure with cascading access permissions and mentions. Organization owners and team maintainers can give teams admin, read, or write access to organization repositories. Team members can easily send notifications to their team, request reviews, or designate team members as owners of certain types or areas of code.

Team synchronization for Azure AD

Setting up teams gives admins a simple way to manage developer access across repositories and other GitHub resources. At the same time, many enterprises use Azure AD Security Groups to manage resource access to groups of developers working on an application.

This release syncs Azure AD with the teams you’ve set up on GitHub, so you can assign a set of access permissions to all members of a group, instead of providing rights individually. You’ll be able to speed up administration with the ability to assign one or more Azure AD groups to a team within GitHub. Being able to manage users from a single location that automatically synchronizes strengthens security and audit compliance.

Stay tuned

We’re just starting to improve the authentication experience across platforms—and actively working on adding the team synchronization functionality to enterprise accounts for supported identity providers. We currently offer limited support for all identity providers that implement the SAML 2.0 standard and will be releasing support for other identity providers soon.
