Upcoming Deprecation of Organization Insights Activity Overview beta

The public beta Activity Overview of Organization Insights for GitHub Enterprise Cloud will be deprecated on January 5, 2024. Since its initial beta launch in 2019, the amount of data calculation and storage required for these views has proven untenable in its current format and the underlying service will be taken offline later in January. Metrics-specific integrations such as Cauldron are available to read, store, and visualize your organization’s data via the GitHub API, as well as more general-purpose data visualization platforms such as PowerBI or Grafana. The Dependency Insights feature will not be impacted.

Code scanning default setup is now available for self-hosted runners on To use default setup for code scanning, assign the code-scanning label to your runner. Default setup now uses actions/github-script instead of the GH CLI. If your organization has a policy which limits GitHub Actions you will need to allow this action in your policy.

Code scanning sees assigned runners when default setup is enabled. As a result, if a runner is assigned to a repository which is already running default setup, you must disable and re-enable default setup to initiate using the runner.

Larger runners are in beta support, with the limitations that you can only define one single larger runner at the org level with the label code-scanning, and Swift analysis is not supported.

For more information, see “Using labels with self-hosted runners.”

Introducing support for multiple GitHub accounts on a single host within the CLI! Log in with your work and personal accounts to manage your projects, wherever they're happening.

To add multiple accounts in the CLI, use the gh auth login command just as before. Now, instead of replacing your previous account, you will see the addition of a new account under gh auth status. This account will be marked as active, to indicate that gh will use it when communicating with GitHub. Run gh auth switch to change the active account, or gh auth logout to remove an account. Further details can be found in the v2.40.0 release notes.

Install or update the GitHub CLI today from your preferred source.
