Restricting repository creation in your organization
To protect your organization's data, you can configure permissions for creating repositories in your organization.
You can choose whether members can create repositories in your organization. If you allow members to create repositories, you can choose which types of repositories members can create. To allow members to create private repositories only, your organization must use GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "About repository visibility."
Organization owners can always create any type of repository.
Enterprise owners can restrict the options you have available for your organization's repository creation policy. For more information, see "Enforcing repository management policies in your enterprise account."
Note: Internal repositories are available for organizations that are part of an enterprise account. For more information, see "About repository visibility."
