This article is applicable to the in-browser client, the universal desktop client and the classic Windows desktop client. For information about version control in the extension for Visual Studio, see Use version control in Visual Studio.

You can create a new branch in your remote repository by pushing your local branch to version control.

A remote branch is a branch of the remote repository managed by your third-party Git provider. In the Provider cell, a Git provider-related icon indicates the branch is remote. To work with remote branches, you need to configure third-party version control. For more information about third-party version control, see Configuring Third-Party Version Control.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your preferred AppBuilder client is running and you are logged in.
  • Verify that you have opened the code for your app in AppBuilder.
  • Verify that you have committed all pending changes.
  • Verify that you have configured third-party version control.

In-Browser

  1. In the top menu bar, select Version ControlBranches.
  2. Select a local-only branch and check it out.
    A local-only branch is a branch that does not have a corresponding copy in the remote repository. A local-only branch is marked only by a cloud icon in the Provider cell.
  3. Click Push.
  4. If prompted, provide your credentials for the third-party Git provider that hosts your remote repository and click OK.
