Go Up to Git Integration in the IDE


Bring up committed files from a specified Git repository to your local machine by downloading a copy of a remote repository.

To clone a remote repository:

  1. Choose File > Open from Version Control > Git. The Clone dialog box appears.
  2. Enter the address of the repository in the URL of Repository field or click the ellipsis button [...] to browse for a local folder.
  3. Enter the directory for the downloaded data in the Destination field, or click the ellipsis button [...] to browse for a local folder.
  4. Click OK to start copying or Cancel to dismiss the download.

If your remote Git Repository needs authentication to pull down your data (it is a private repository), you need to log in based on a user name and password. The IDE shows then the Git Login prompt and you can enter the credentials needed.
