GitHub Upgrade – 3.8.2

On May 1, 2023 at 5PM EST, the GitHub Service Team will upgrade the GitHub Enterprise appliance to version 3.8.2, which consists primarily of bug fixes. The appliance may be down for up to an hour. If longer downtime is expected, information to that effect will be posted in the service portal.

During this time, no users will be able to access the service or hosted repositories in any way.

Bug fixes

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, nested calls to reusable workflows within a reusable workflow job with a matrix correctly evaluate contexts within expressions, likeĀ strategy: ${{ inputs.strategies }}.
  • Download requests for Git LFS objects did not complete until reporting the final download size, which affected the latency of these requests, particularly on an instance with nodes functioning as repository caches.
  • On an instance with GitHub Connect enabled, if “Users can search” was enabled, issues in private and internal repositories were not included in users search results for
  • After restoration of a deleted organization, the organization did not appear in the instance’s list of organizations.

Questions regarding this upgrade may be sent to or via the NC State IT Service Portal via or (919) 515-4357.
