Removing branches or repositories
This topic describes the manual procedures required to import a repository and remove a branch or repository .
Remove a branch
There is no GitCentric Delete Branch feature. To remove a branch that has been mapped to an AccuRev stream, use the following procedure:
- Ensure that the Force option is applied to the Push and Push Annotated Tag permissions for the repo (see Access).
- Use the
config-branch CLI command (see
config-branch) to clear any
ssh -p 29418 <username>@<server> gitcentric config-branch --branch <branchname> <reponame> --clear
Alternative: On the AccuRev Connector panel (Administration > Repositories > AccuRev Connector), select the mappings associated with the branch you intend to delete and click the Delete button.
- Use the standard Git command to delete the branch:
git branch -d $branch
- Push the change.
Remove a repository
There is no Delete Repository feature in the GitCentric GUI. You should not remove a repository from disk. Instead, set the description to OBSOLETE and set the ACLs so that only the Administrator group can see it.
If you are certain you want to remove a repository, consider using the GitCentric delete-repo command. For details, see delete-repo.
