Secret scanning’s push protection now generally available for GitHub Advanced Security

Secret scanning's push protection feature is now generally available for GitHub Advanced Security customers.

Customers can enable push protection for any private repository that has GitHub Advanced Security. Push protection can also be enabled for any public repository, for free. To bulk enable push protection, customers can visit their organization and enterprise's "Code security and analysis" settings in the UI or REST APIs.

Push protection is also available for any custom pattern defined at the repository, organization, and enterprise level. See step 11 under "Defining a custom pattern for a repository" for more details in our documentation.

Actions on GitHub Mobile

Actions are coming to your Repositories on GitHub Mobile! Find all your repository's workflows in one convenient place.

Tapping on the new "Actions" row on a Repository now shows you a list of all of the Repository's workflows.

If you want to dig into the details, tapping on a run will lead you into the familiar workflow experience we brought you last year to explore everything from a run's overall status to its individual jobs and even logs.

A run didn't go as planned? No problem. Toggle the new debug-switch when re-running a workflow to see what's going on under the hood, just like you would on

Previously, all attached (drag-and-dropped) images and videos on GitHub Issues, Pull Requests, Discussions, and wikis were available to view without authentication if you knew their direct URL. Now, future attachments associated with private repositories can only be viewed after logging in. This doesn’t apply retroactively to existing attachments, which are obfuscated by having a long, unguessable URL.

Email notifications sent from private repositories will no longer display images; each image is replaced by a link to view it on the web. Content inside a Git repository is not affected by this change and has always required authentication for private repositories.
