Inviting collaborators to a personal repository

You can add users as collaborators to your personal repository.

If you're using GitHub Free, you can add unlimited collaborators on public repositories, and up to three collaborators on private repositories owned by your personal account. To add more than three other people as repository collaborators, upgrade to GitHub Pro.

Repositories owned by an organization can grant more granular access. For more information, see "Access permissions on GitHub Enterprise."

  1. Ask for the username of the person you're inviting as a collaborator.

  2. On GitHub Enterprise, navigate to the main page of the repository.

  3. Under your repository name, click Settings.
