Sunset Notice: Deprecated Teams API Endpoints

Update on March 4, 2022: We have temporarily paused the sunset. Please read the official announcement for more information.

In early 2020, we moved the Teams API from a top-level path under /teams/:team_id to a scoped path under the organization that owns the team like /organizations/:org_id/team/:team_id and added support to make the API available under a named path like /orgs/:org/teams/:team_slug.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sunsetting the API endpoints under /teams/:team_id.



  • March 1, 2022 for 12 hours starting at 14:00 UTC
  • March 8, 2022 for 24 hours starting at 14:00 UTC

If you make a request to an affected endpoint during the brownouts, GitHub will respond with a client error.

Steps to take

The easiest way to update your code is to switch to the /organizations/:org_id/team/:team_id path. If you're unsure of what org_id to use, you can GET the current team under /teams/:team_id and find the id field inside the organization hash in the response.

Please refer to the REST API documentation to learn more about supported Teams API endpoints.

GitHub code scanning supports a wide variety of code analysis engines through GitHub Actions workflows — including our own CodeQL engine. Users can now discover and configure Actions workflow templates for partner integrations straight from their repository's "Actions" tab under a category called "Security". Workflows are recommended based on the repository's content: we will suggest analysis engines that are compatible with the source code in your repository.

Configure workflow

Code scanning and our own CodeQL analysis engine are freely available for public repositories. Analysis engines and services provided by partners might require a subscription. You can also configure code scanning for organization-owned private repositories where GitHub Advanced Security is enabled.

Learn more about code scanning workflows on GitHub Actions tab.
