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 Commerce.

In addition to Git's requirements for valid branch names, Magento Commerce 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.
