Secret scanning: Organization admins can now set a link via the API to help developers blocked on push

GitHub Advanced Security customers using secret scanning can now specify a custom link via the organization level REST API that will show in the message when push protection detects and blocks a potential secret. Admins can use the custom link to point their developers to company-specific guidance on secrets.

Previously, admins could only set a custom link through the UI.

GitHub verified teachers using GitHub Classroom get access to GitHub’s groundbreaking, browser-based IDE, Codespaces. Teachers can enable Codespaces in GitHub Classroom and then choose it as the preferred editor when creating assignments.

We heard your feedback and from today, students can directly launch existing or new Codespaces from the Open in Codespaces button in readme.

For more information check out our documentation. Your feedback is welcome at our Education Community Forum.

Organization administrators can now filter fine-grained personal access tokens (PATs) by their permissions in the organization settings UI. Both pending token requests and active tokens can be filtered by permission, such as issues_write and members_read.


After setting a filter, only tokens with that permission will be shown in the table.

To learn more about fine-grained PATs, see "Reviewing fine-grained personal access tokens" and "Managing requests for fine-grained personal access tokens".
