Zylo + Github Integration for Better Org Insight

In the enterprise, it’s easy to have hundreds – if not thousands! – of repos and users within an organization. What’s not so easy is knowing where important code lives, keeping up with who has access to what, and understanding which teams and users are the most active. But, with so much of your business dependent on this tool, it just made sense for us to find a way to help you better analyze and act on your company’s Github activity.

So today, we are excited to announce the Zylo integration for Github. With this new integration, Zylo users can:

  • Ensure critical code is secure by better visualizing how many teams – and therefore how many Github users – have access to key repositories
  • Track license utilization and reclaim unused licenses to get the most value out of your Github investment
  • Better visualize and target the holes in your Github organization by seeing relevant repo and team data at just a glance

Repos are where your company’s code lives…which makes them something you definitely want to have a handle on! But when there are dozens, hundreds, or even thousands, it can be hard to get a grasp on who all has access, where the most important code is stored, and which repos are effectively “dead” and can be cleared out.

Drill down to individual users to view activity and see who has access to what.

Zylo enables to you to see all of this relevant data at just a glance. Not only are you able to sort by repo name, but you can also search through the list of names to target exactly the repos you want to know more about. Additionally, we bring the number of teams associated with the repo to light, as well as the date of last activity for the repo as a whole and the individual users within it. This makes it extremely simple to filter by most and least used, so you can decide on the appropriate next steps. We’ve even included a direct link to the repo, enabling you to access it right from the platform.

Visualize team activity and track license utilization

The Teams tab within your Github app details is easily one of the most powerful aspects of this integration. It allows you to see, at a glance, the size, activity, and membership of each team. Sorting on all columns – by active members, pending invites, repos it contributes to, and date created – helps you to get to the bottom of what you want to know quickly. Plus, the View Users click through takes you directly to a filtered view of the members within each team, allowing you to get a handle on active and inactive users by name so you can better assess license utilization and reclaim those licenses that are sitting dormant. And, by connecting to Github via a webhook, events flow into Zylo seamlessly, meaning that your data is always up to date!

With the Zylo + Github integration, never again will you have to wonder if critical code is overexposed, how many dead repos are floating around in your org, or which teams and team members are inactive. And, with reporting capabilities on both pending users and individual user event activity within the org, you can drill down into what really matters.
