Cloning a Copy of a Repository
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:
- Choose File > Open from Version Control > Git. The Clone dialog box appears.
- Enter the address of the repository in the URL of Repository field or click the ellipsis button [...] to browse for a local folder.
- Enter the directory for the downloaded data in the Destination field, or click the ellipsis button [...] to browse for a local folder.
- 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.
