Once a team has been created, organization admins can add users from your GitHub Enterprise instance to the team and determine which repositories they have access to.

Each team has its own individually defined access permissions for repositories owned by your organization.

  • Members with the owner role can add or remove existing organization members from all teams.
  • Members of teams that give admin permissions can only modify team membership and repositories for that team.

Mapping teams to LDAP groups (for instances using LDAP Sync for user authentication)

A team that's synced to an LDAP group is indicated with a special LDAP badge. The member list for an LDAP synced team can only be managed from the LDAP group it's mapped to.

To add a new member to a team synced to an LDAP group, add the user as a member of the LDAP group, or contact your LDAP administrator.
