Pull Changes Dialog
Use this dialog box to specify parameters for fetching changes from a remote repository and applying them to a local repository.
|Git Root||From this drop-down list, select the path to the local repository which you want to refresh.|
|Current Branch||This read-only field shows the name of the branch which is currently checked out in the selected local repository. The changes retrieved from the source remote repository will be applied to the displayed branch.|
|Remote||From this drop-down list, select the alias of the source remote repository.|
||Click this button to have the Branches to Merge list box display the actual list of branches in the source remote repository.|
|Branches to Merge||Use this list box to specify the branches to which you want to apply the fetched changes.|
|Strategy||From this drop-down list, select the merge strategy.
The available options are:
|No Commit||Select this check box if you need to inspect and, if necessary, adjust the result of merging the fetched data before committing the result. The merge is performed but is not committed automatically, as if it failed.|
|No Fast Forward||Select this check box to generate a merge commit even if the merge resolved as a fast-forward.|
|Squash Commit||Select this check box to create a single commit on top of the current branch instead of merging one or more other branches. The working tree and index state are produced as if a real merge happened, but commit is not performed and the HEAD is not moved.|
|Add Log Information||Select this check box to have IntelliJ IDEA populate, in addition to branch names, a log message with one-line descriptions from the actual commits that are being merged.|
|Pull||Click this button to initiate fetching changes from the specified remote repository and applying them locally according to the defined settings.|
