New developer tools

Now, if you have GitHub Business Cloud in addition to your Enterprise instance, you can tap into everything you love about open source from behind your firewall. Find public content and collaborate with the entire GitHub community without sacrificing security.

Checks API (public beta)

The Checks API helps integrators build sophisticated tools for continuous integration, linting, and acceptance testing on GitHub. Previously, integrators could report success or failure of a build and include a link to more information using our Statuses API. With the new Checks API, they can specify more status information during builds and collect richer data, providing a more integrated experience for developers.

Multiple issue templates

Project maintainers can now organize contributions and reduce noise for projects that have lots of collaborators with multiple issue templates and an improved setup process.

Ignore white space

When reviewing code, a diff with a number of white space changes can distract from the changes that matter. Now it’s easier to understand code updates from white space changes with an improved diff view. Change your view to automatically filter it out by clicking Diff settings.

Multiple required reviewers

As projects grow, you may want additional reviews for your team’s code changes. With the new multiple reviewer requirement, you can set how many reviewers are required for every pull request on a protected branch—so your organization’s important projects are protected from unwanted changes.

Easier administration

Automated support tickets

Now you can create a support ticket directly from Enterprise and send diagnostic information to get help faster. We’ve also created a new command—ghe-support-upload—to directly upload your support tickets with the output of commands.

Dormancy threshold configuration

Enterprise 2.14 adjusts the default threshold for developers who are considered dormant from 30 to 90 days, so developers can retain access longer—and admins can now configure the threshold to fit their team.

Anonymous git access

You can now opt in to configure anonymous git access to public repositories when your Enterprise environment is in private mode. This helps continuous integration tools and build machines seamlessly access code for testing or deploy pipelines—and makes it easier for them to distribute Go or Swift projects that use git for submodules.

Additional updates

  • Improved project permissions: With more granular permissions for your team’s projects and the ability to create public projects, it’s now easier to update who has access to projects in your organization.
  • User hovercards: Developers will now be able to see more information about project collaborators when they hover over their avatars—or most places you see their username—including information that’s specific to their interaction with them.
  • Jump to: Now developers can quickly navigate to team pages, repositories, and projects they recently visited when they click the GitHub search bar (or hit the “/” key) with our new “jump to” feature.
  • Personal and organization dashboard improvements: Developers will now see more activity posts and better organization of content with improvements to personal and organization dashboards.
