User migrations

The User migrations API is only available to authenticated account owners. You can use this API to review, backup, or migrate your user data stored on GitHub.com. For a list of migration data that you can download, see "Download a user migration archive."

To download an archive, you'll need to start a user migration first. Once the status of the migration is exported, you can download the migration.

Once you've created a migration archive, it will be available to download for seven days. But, you can delete the user migration archive sooner if you'd like. You can unlock your repository when the migration is exported to begin using your repository again or delete the repository if you no longer need the source data.

To access the Migrations API, you must provide a custom media type in the Accept header:

  application/vnd.github.wyandotte-preview+json

Warning: The API may change without advance notice during the preview period. Preview features are not supported for production use. If you experience any issues, contact GitHub support.
