How Cloud Uses Git

Git knowledge

We assume you have a good working knowledge of Git. If not, consult the following resources:

Before getting started, make sure you have a Git client installed on your computer to be able to interact with Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition.

In addition to Git's requirements for valid branch names, Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition adds two additional requirements:

  • The / character isn't allowed.
  • Branch names must be case-insensitively unique. In other words, if you have a branch named _CaSe_, you cannot create another branch named _case_.

You must use Secure Shell (SSH) and not HTTPS to connect to the Git repository. For more information, see GitHub documentation.
