Git Repository Overview

Updated 1 week ago by Copado Solutions

A Git repository is a storage location where versions of your files can be stored. This could be a hosted location or your own Git server.

Creating a Git Repository Record

A Git Repository record in Copado stores the relationship between Copado and the version control system that you are using.

To create a Git Repository record in Copado follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Git Repositories tab.
  2. Click on New.
  3. Give your repository a name.
  4. Select a source format.
  5. Choose SSH or Https as authentication type.
  6. Fill in the URI field and any other fields that may be required depending on the authentication type selected in the previous step.
  7. Select a Git provider. You can choose from GitLab, GitHub, Bitbucket or Microsoft Team Service and Copado will populate the URL fields based on the provider selected. If you are working with a different provider, select Other: In this case you will need to manually input the URL fields.
  8. Click on Save:

Copado will automatically perform a validation of your login credentials, and you will see the result of this validation once the page has loaded.
