In late 2022 we launched a private beta of innersource restricted users allowing customers with enterprise managed users (EMU) to assign an IdP-defined role to users who should not be granted access to internal repositories in any organization they are not expressly a member. We have made improvements to align product behavior with beta customer feedback and are updating the feature name to "guest collaborators" to better reflect the expected use cases. Guest collaborators are distinct from outside collaborators because they are always IdP-defined users intended to be fully managed within an enterprise's security boundary.

Existing private beta customers will see visual changes reflecting the transition from "restricted users" to "guest collaborators" over the coming days. We have also submitted Azure AD and Okta app changes to support a "guest collaborator" role to replace "restricted user". While the guest collaborators feature remains in private beta, we are working toward an upcoming public beta release adding the ability to selectively add guest collaborators to individual repositories without granting organization membership. At public beta release, we will have more information on how to transition your existing app integration without any breaking change.

We are still accepting private beta enrollments for customers if you would like to test the existing capabilities of the feature. Please reach out to your account team or contact our sales team for more details.
