Is there a way to make a public orb private?

Hi,

With private orbs now being available from any paying plans, is it possible to make some of our public orbs private?
I haven’t found information about it in the documentation.

Hi @nijellab,

Thank you for your interest in private orbs!

Currently there is no way to change a public orb to a private orb. The reasoning behind this is to prevent any breaking changes in builds for users who are using the orb but are not a part of the organization who created it.

The recommended workaround would be to recreate the public orb as a private orb. Then you would have to update the config.yml files that were referencing the previous orb.

You are more than welcome to create a feature request on the following page:

Let me know if you have any additional concerns or questions!

Best Regards
