Git summary

Git is the world’s most popular distributed version control system; it can used to manage source code efficiently.

By pressing "Enable Git on this Project" on Project settings > Git settings, the Git tab will be shown in the Project menu and you'll be able to use Git on Backlog.

Repositories created on Backlog can be accessed via SSH or HTTP.


Each URL is:

SSH: [Space ID][Project key]/[Repository name].git

HTTP: https://[Space ID][Project key]/[Repository name].git





For a SSH connection, you can access the repository by registering the SSH public key on Backlog.

For a HTTP connection, you can access the repository with your Backlog ID and password.


Unlike the Subversion repository, multiple Git repositories can be created for each Project.


Only administrators and normal users can access repositories on Backlog server and Git pages. Other users, such as reporters and guest users, cannot access the repositories.
