Adding a collaborator to a maintainer security advisory

You can add other users or teams to collaborate on a security advisory with you.

Note: Maintainer security advisories are currently in public beta and subject to change.

Anyone with admin permissions to a security advisory can add a collaborator to a security advisory.

Collaborators have write permissions to the security advisory. For more information, see "Permission levels for maintainer security advisories."

The person you add as a collaborator must have read permissions to the repository. If the repository is owned by an organization, the person must also be an organization member or outside collaborator on the repository.

  2. Under your repository name, click Security.

    Security tab

  3. In the left sidebar, click Advisories.
