» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) The name of the repository.

  • description - (Optional) A description of the repository.

  • homepage_url - (Optional) URL of a page describing the project.

  • private - (Optional) Set to true to create a private repository. Repositories are created as public (e.g. open source) by default.

  • visibility - (Optional) Can be public or private. If your organization is associated with an enterprise account using GitHub Enterprise Cloud or GitHub Enterprise Server 2.20+, visibility can also be internal. The visibility parameter overrides the private parameter.

  • has_issues - (Optional) Set to true to enable the GitHub Issues features on the repository.

  • has_projects - (Optional) Set to true to enable the GitHub Projects features on the repository. Per the GitHub documentation when in an organization that has disabled repository projects it will default to false and will otherwise default to true. If you specify true when it has been disabled it will return an error.

  • has_wiki - (Optional) Set to true to enable the GitHub Wiki features on the repository.

  • is_template - (Optional) Set to true to tell GitHub that this is a template repository.

  • allow_merge_commit - (Optional) Set to false to disable merge commits on the repository.

  • allow_squash_merge - (Optional) Set to false to disable squash merges on the repository.

  • allow_rebase_merge - (Optional) Set to false to disable rebase merges on the repository.

  • delete_branch_on_merge - (Optional) Automatically delete head branch after a pull request is merged. Defaults to false.

  • has_downloads - (Optional) Set to true to enable the (deprecated) downloads features on the repository.

  • auto_init - (Optional) Set to true to produce an initial commit in the repository.

  • gitignore_template - (Optional) Use the name of the template without the extension. For example, "Haskell".

  • license_template - (Optional) Use the name of the template without the extension. For example, "mit" or "mpl-2.0".

  • default_branch - (Optional) The name of the default branch of the repository. NOTE: This can only be set after a repository has already been created, and after a correct reference has been created for the target branch inside the repository. This means a user will have to omit this parameter from the initial repository creation and create the target branch inside of the repository prior to setting this attribute.

  • archived - (Optional) Specifies if the repository should be archived. Defaults to false. NOTE Currently, the API does not support unarchiving.

  • topics - (Optional) The list of topics of the repository.

  • template - (Optional) Use a template repository to create this resource. See Template Repositories below for details.
