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. Organization owners can always create any type of repository. For more information, see "About repository visibility."

Site administrators can restrict the options you have available for your organization's repository creation policy. For more information, see "Restricting repository creation in your instance."
