About license synchronization

Site administrators can allow GitHub Enterprise Server to send user license count and usage to GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

After you send user license information, you'll be able to view license usage for your entire enterprise account, across GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "Managing your GitHub Enterprise Server license."

You can also manually upload GitHub Enterprise Server user license information to GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "Connecting GitHub Enterprise Server to GitHub Enterprise Cloud."
