All the GitHub repositories that you can access will be displayed in the Export to GitHub window.
The left side panel of the window is the list of all the repositories in which you have read or write permissions, which includes organization repositories. For example, the

TIBCO Cloud Integration only supports export to the master branch of the repositories on GitHub.
Select a GitHub repository, and enter a File Name and Commit message.
You can choose the repository from the left panel, navigate to the target folder and export to API specifications from this folder.
Note: If you choose an organization repository to export your API specifications, make sure you have the write permission to this repository. By default, your permissions follow the organization Member privilege. If the organization member has Read permission, you will need to have the organization Admin add you into a team that has Write permission to the desired repository of this organization in order to export to this repository. Please refer to your GitHub organization owner for the details.
