The internal repository visibility is now generally available. In addition to recent updates, we’ve added the following capabilities:

  • Search now allows you to filter results for internal repositories using is:internal
  • Enterprise forking policy for private repositories now also applies to internal repositories
  • New internal API parameters for this feature are available for organization and repository endpoints.
  • Additional search indexes are being rebuilt over the next several days to return internal repository pull requests, issues, code, and other searchable objects

The internal repository visibility option makes it easier to innersource code and projects to fellow enterprise members while restricting access to outside collaborators. It is generally available to customers with an Enterprise account.

At this time we are planning to release this functionality to GitHub Enterprise Server version 2.20.
