TL;DR - Use GitHub to increase team collaboration, encourage code review, create DevOps workflows, avoid PHI breaches and more.
- Request Access - Submit the GitHub Account Request Form
- Ask Questions - Email [email protected] or join our UC Tech slack channel #ucsf-github
- GitHub Enterprise Server - Avoid PHI exposure risks by using the secure, on-premises instance to protect code that may touch PHI or other P3 & P4 data
- GitHub Enterprise Cloud - Collaborate with external 3rd party members by using the cloud instance
GitHub Account Options:
- GitHub Enterprise On-Premises Server (GHE Server) - This secure instance, hosted at git.ucsf.edu, is approved for code that may have PHI and other P3 or P4 data.
- To request a user account or an organization account submit the GitHub Account Request Form
- GitHub Enterprise Cloud (GHE Cloud) - Best suited for teams that need to collaborate with users outside of UCSF. Unlike the free version of GitHub Public Cloud, this instance provides all enterprise features, and it also allows using your existing GitHub Public Cloud login if you prefer.
