Private Elixir packages and organizations

Dependabot now supports private Elixir packages and organizations.

Last month, the team announced they were going live with organizations. Now Dependabot can keep your private Elixir packages and organisations up-to-date, too.

Here's how it works:

  • Dependabot will automatically detect if your repo uses any private packages during its first update run.
  • If it does, Dependabot will create an issue asking you to add an auth key as a config variable.
  • Once you've added your auth details, updates will run as usual.

If you use organizations and have any trouble let us know and we'll get any issues fixed immediately.


Dependabot helps keep your dependencies up-to-date. It's free for personal accounts and open source, and always will be.
