The GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 Release Candidate is available

The GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 release candidate is here

GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 gives customers more control over how their instance is used and run. Here are a few highlights:

  • Code Scanning configuration can be customized per repository, allowing repository owners to decide which languages to analyze by default.
  • Fine-grained personal access tokens (PATs) are now available as a public beta on Enterprise Server, giving developers and administrators granular control over the permissions and repository access granted to a PAT.
  • Assess security risk and coverage data across all organizations in an enterprise via the Code Security tab.
  • Define who can merge pull requests, and how they are merged, to make it easier for you to meet your compliance and security goals.
  • Reduce data transfer required to backup your Enterprise Server by utilizing incremental backups of MySQL data in backup-utils v3.10.0.
  • GitHub Projects is now generally available in Enterprise Server.

If you are upgrading from Enterprise Server 3.8 then this release also includes an upgrade from MySQL 5.7 to 8, which will increase I/O utilization. Please read this page for more details on this increase and how to mitigate it if you see an unacceptable degradation of performance on your instance.

Release Candidates are a way for you to try the latest features at the earliest time, and they help us gather feedback early to ensure the release works in your environment. They should be tested on non-production environments. Here are some highlights for this release. Read more about the release candidate process.

For security reasons, source IP addresses have been removed from error messages that are returned from the GitHub API when callers try to access protected resources from non-permitted IP addresses.

The code scanning REST API updated_at field has been improved to help you review your most recently changed alerts.

The updated_at timestamp now returns the alert's most recent state change on the branch that you requested. We consider a state change to be a significant event, including an alert being introduced, fixed, dismissed, reopened or reintroduced. This is implemented in both the repo API and org API so it can be used consistently at scale.

Previously, the updated_at timestamp changed whenever an alert was found in an analysis or the alert state changed, and so was updated very regularly. This improvement lets you efficiently use updated_at to sort and focus on your most recently changed alerts.

The code scanning REST API list alerts endpoints code-scanning/alerts returns the value for the default branch, unless another branch is specificed. The alert endpoint code-scanning/alerts/{alert_number} reports at the alert level, so will return the maximum value for the alert across all branches.

This is now live on for the repository level API. This will be live for the organization level API over the next few days because it requires data reindexing. This will ship to GitHub Enterprise Server version 3.11. For more information, see the code scanning REST API documentation.
