Upcoming deprecation of authentication using GitHub OAuth

User authentication via GitHub OAuth is being deprecated and will be removed in a future feature release. It will be removed no sooner than November 2015.

GitHub Enterprise includes support for authenticating users via OAuth to accounts on because it provides a simple way to set up external authentication. However, after speaking with many customers, we've found that organizations commonly have other sources they want to use to automate identity and access management.

We want to focus on features that best meet the needs of our users, so we're planning to remove support for GitHub OAuth in a future feature release and focus on making ongoing improvements to other authentication methods like SAML and LDAP.

Note that this change will only affect user authentication via and not personal access tokens or OAuth applications added to your GitHub Enterprise instance.

Upcoming deprecation of GitHub Enterprise 2.0

GitHub Enterprise 2.0 will be deprecated as of January 1, 2016. That means that no patch releases will be made, even for critical security issues, after this date. For better performance, improved security, and new features, upgrade to the newest version of GitHub Enterprise as soon as possible.
