We’ve now made migrating existing tag protection rules into repository rules easy. With a few clicks, you can take multiple tag protection rules and turn them into a single ruleset or turn each rule into corresponding rulesets for more granular control.

Tag protection rules control who can create, update, and delete tags. Moving your tag protections to repository rules allows you to require status checks, deployments to pass, and signed commits. You also get the rest of the repository rules power, with configurable enforcement status, bypass lists, and flexible targeting.

For GitHub Enterprise Cloud customers, you can pair metadata restrictions with your tag protection to manage commit messages and control the names of your tags.
