For enterprise owners and security managers dedicated to managing security products, we are excited to announce a new capability: you can now gain historical insights into security products enablement trends across your GitHub enterprise. This overview helps you understand how security product coverage is being implemented across your company.

Following our March announcement of the public beta of the enablement trends report for organizations, which allowed monitoring of enablement trends for all security products within your GitHub organization, we’ve expanded this capability to the enterprise level. The addition of an owner filter further simplifies the navigation of metrics for repositories owned by specific organizations.

Enterprise enablement trends report

Explore enablement trends and gain historical insights into the activation status of GitHub security features:
* Dependabot alerts
* Dependabot security updates
* Code scanning
* Secret scanning alerts
* Secret scanning push protection

Historical data is available from January 1, 2024, with the exception of Dependabot security updates data, which is available from January 17, 2024.

To access the enablement trends report, navigate to your enterprise account. In the enterprise account sidebar, click Code Security.

This feature is now available as a public beta on GitHub Enterprise Cloud and will be available in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.14.

The new deployment views across environments are now generally available (GA)! 🎉

Previously we have shipped dashboard views to track your deployments using GitHub Actions across various environments.
These views have enabled Developers and DevOps managers to view the full history of deployments in a repository or filter them across environments & workflows to understand their status, duration or address any blockers.

We are now announcing GA for these Deployment Dashboard views along with the following enhancements:

  • Pinning of environments. Ex: You can now “pin” up to 10 of your most critical environments to provide a quick way to view all the deployments rolled out to them.
  • More filters on the views. Ex: You can now drill down to the list of deployments triggered by specific creators with specific deployment statuses and targeting specific environments.

New Deployment views

Learn more about viewing and filtering deployments in your repository through our documentation.
