Advanced Security committer reporting

GitHub Advanced Security customers can now view their active committer count for any Advanced Security enabled repositories on their organization or enterprise account's Billing page. These changes help billing administrators track their usage against how many committer licenses they purchased.

You can now limit which branches can deploy to an environment using Environment protection rules.

When a job tries to deploy to an environment with Deployment branches configured Actions will check the value of github.ref against the configuration and if it does not match the job will fail and the run will stop.

The Deployment branches rule can be configured to allow:

  1. All branches – Any branch in the repository can deploy

  2. Protected branches – Only branches with protection rules

  3. Selected branches – Branches matching a set of name patterns

    Configure Deployment branches
