Improvements to GitHub Advanced Security billing pages

We've shipped improvements to the billing pages for GitHub Advanced Security so it is easier for you to see how many licenses you are using.

  • You can now see how enterprises and organizations are using licenses in the summary tiles.
  • You can download a CSV report for each item in the billing table so it is easier to report on license usage.
  • For enterprises, the table is sorted by the number of unique committers in each organization, so it is easy to see where GitHub Advanced Security licenses are used.
  • If an organization chooses to disable GitHub Advanced Security on a repository, the confirmation popup now informs you how this would impact your overall licenses usage.

Enterprise and Organisation GitHub Advanced Security usage

This is available on the GitHub Advanced Security section on the enterprise's billing settings page enterprise-name/settings/billing and the organization's code security and analysis settings page organization-name/settings/security_analysis.

This has shipped to and will be available in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.9. Learn more about the GitHub Advanced Security billing.

GitHub Advanced Security customers using secret scanning can now view any new secrets exposed in an issue's title, description, or comments within the UI or the REST API. This expanded coverage will also detect and surface secrets matching any custom pattern defined at the repository, organization, or enterprise levels.

We have also expanded the secret scanning partner program. Secret scanning partners will now receive notifications for secrets found in public issues that match their token formats.

We have made bunch of improvements to our GitHub app in Slack and Microsoft Teams.


1. Introduced comment capability within Pull request notification cards

We have now added support to add comments on your pull requests directly from the notification card in Slack.

2. Introduced threading for Pull request notifications

Notifications for any Pull request will be grouped under a parent card as replies. The parent card always shows the latest status of the PR along with other meta-data like title, description, reviewers, labels and checks. Threading gives context, improve collaboration and reduces noise in the channel.

3. Added support to turn on/off threading for Issues and Pull requests

If you do not want to use threading or need some flexibility, we are also rolling out an option to turn on/off threading for issues and pull requests.

Microsoft Teams

1. Improved the create issue functionality

You can now create issues with just a click, right from the place where you interact with your team i.e. from your channels and personal app.

  • The content of the chat is automatically added into the description along with the link to the MS Teams conversation.
  • The last used repo in the channel will be automatically filled in. However, you can go ahead and change to the repo if needed.
  • You can optionally fill in labels, assignees and milestones when you create an issue.
  • Once the issue is created you will receive a confirmation card in the channel where you created the issue.

2. Enhanced the PR notification cards in Channel and Personal App
