I am trying to change the 'Access Level' from private to public for the repositories in my account

I am trying to change the 'Access Level' from private to public for the repositories in my account. I followed the below steps but it seems my access level has been greyed out.

Set repository privacy status

A private repository is visible only to users who have permission to see it. A public repository is visible to everyone. 

  1. From the repository, click Settings in the sidebar.
  2. Locate Access level on the Repository details page. Add or remove the checkmark from This is a private repository based on your preferred privacy status.
  3. Click Save repository details.

 

Access level This is a private repository¹Uncheck to make this repository public. Public repositories typically contain open-source code and can be viewed by anyone.

Hi @vgeorgebit , welcome to the Community :) 

I understand you'd like to change the privacy settings of your repository, but the option is greyed out for you.

Can you confirm you are the owner of the repository whose privacy you're trying to change?

If you are the owner and you're still unable to change this setting, check if your repository is part of a project and whether the project was set to public or private.

If you're still having difficulties, please send us a screenshot so we can see that this option greyed out and share the name of the repo with us so we can have a look.

Kind regards,

Ana

Thanks!

Yes I am the owner of the repositories. 

It does seem to have resolved itself after I generated an app password. 

To make a repository public, you should make your project public and then make the repository public.

I have made no changes but this has now been resolved.
