View Commit History

Use the Commits page to view the commit history of a specific branch or tag. You can locate a branch or tag using its name.

To review a branch’s or tag’s commit history:

  1. Click the Commits tab to display the Commits page. The Repo and Branch fields retain their last values, even if they were set on the Source Tree or Branches pages.
  2. Select the repository from the Repo list. If available, the master branch for the repository you choose is selected by default in the Branch field. Otherwise, GitCentric displays the first branch in the repository based on an alphanumeric sort.
  3. Optionally, use the Branch list to choose a branch other than master or a tag.
    Tip: The list includes only branches by default. You can also include (or restrict the list to) tags, which are often used to mark important milestones like release points (v2.0, for ). If you choose a tag, GitCentric changes the Branch icon and label to Tag: .
    GitCentric refreshes the Commits page to update the starting point of the history. Each row represents a single commit, starting with the most recent. Scroll the page to reach the origin of the commit graph.
