Enterprise 2.12

See the Enterprise homepage for information about the supported releases. These Enterprise-specific endpoints are available:

Endpoint URLs

REST API endpoints—except Management Console API endpoints—are prefixed with the following URL:

http(s)://hostname/api/v3/

Management Console API endpoints are only prefixed with a hostname:

http(s)://hostname/

Authentication

Your Enterprise installation's API endpoints accept the same authentication methods as the GitHub.com API. You can authenticate yourself with OAuth tokens (which can be created using the Authorizations API) or basic authentication.

Every Enterprise API endpoint is only accessible to GitHub Enterprise site administrators, with the exception of the Management Console API, which is only accessible via the Management Console password.

Version information

The current version of a GitHub Enterprise instance is returned in the response header of every API:

X-GitHub-Enterprise-Version: 2.12.0

You can also read the current version by calling the meta endpoint.
