July 15, 2021: Github Enterprise Will Update Authentication Methods

On July 13, 2021, Cornell’s Github Enterprise service will be updated for enhanced security. This change will mirror the upcoming change to token authentication on the main Github.com website. This change may impact some users depending on how they interact with Cornell’s Github Enterprise service.

If you use your Cornell netid and Cornell password for authentication during Git operations, you must switch to token-based authentication or SSH-based authentication.

Logging into the website interface will continue to work, albeit using Cornell’s Two-Step login.

You can read more about changes you might need to make on the Github Authentication support page.
