Teams give organizations the ability to group collaborators and repositories.

Each team has its own individually defined access permissions for repositories.

  • Members of the Owners team can modify teams and assign teams to repositories.
  • Members with Admin access control the organization's admin team.

Each user must have a personal account before they can be added to the organization.
