Audit Log Streaming to Datadog available as Private Beta

GitHub Enterprise Cloud (GHEC) customers can now participate in a private beta enabling audit log streaming to a Datadog endpoint. Audit log streaming to Datadog not only allows enterprises to satisfy long-term data retention goals but also analyze GitHub audit log data using the tools offered by Datadog.

GHEC administrators interested in participating in the private beta should reach out to your GitHub account manager or contact our sales team to make the feature available for your enterprise. Once enabled, administrators can follow the instructions for setting up streaming to Datadog and provide feedback on their experience at the audit log streaming to Datadog community discussion.

You can now manage Actions cache from your terminal by installing the new GitHub CLI extension for Actions cache:

    gh extension install actions/gh-actions-cache 

This extension is built on top of GitHub APIs for cache management and enables you to get:

  • More transparency by listing all the active caches in a repository and sorting by metadata like cache size, creation time or last accessed time.
  • Better control over cache usage by deleting a corrupt or a stale cache entry

  • General security improvements see the removal of insecure SSH keys and protocols from Git, and the addition of TLS enforcement for inbound SMTP connections.
  • Advanced Security security overview now includes all alert types and dependency review now has an API and an associated Action, making it easy to break the build if a vulnerable dependency is being introduced.
