Update access to a team repository

You can control access to your team's repositories by adding groups and users to a repository. To create groups, go to the User Groups page of your team or individual account settings.

If you create a new group for your team, it doesn't get automatically added to your existing repositories. To grant the new group access to existing team repositories:

  1. Open the repository Settings and click User and group access.
  2. From the Groups section, click Select a group and scroll down to your new group or start typing its name in the text box.
  3. After you've found the right group, pick the access level from the next dropdown:
    • Admin–Allows users to do everything a repository owner can do: change repository settings, update user permissions, and delete the repository.
    • Write–Allows users to contribute to the repository by pushing changes directly.
    • Read–Allows users to view, clone, and fork the repository code but not push changes. Read access also allows users to create issues, comment on issues, and edit wiki pages.
  4. Click Add to add the group to the repository.
