Working with remote Repositories

Cloning remote Repositories

Using the Git import wizard you can clone remote repositories using different transport protocols. Additionally you may import existing Eclipse projects into your workspace and share the projects with the Git team provider.

Start the import wizard by navigating to File -> Import... and choose "Git Repository".

Repository Selection

On the first page of the wizard enter the location of the remote repository:

  • URI - The complete URI of the remote repository or the path on the file system. This field is automatically synchronized with the other fields.
  • Host - The name of the remote host or empty if cloning from the file system.
  • Repository Path - Path to the remote repository or on the file system.
  • Protocol - One of the protocols described below.
  • Port - Port number.
  • User - The user name used for authentication.
  • Password The password used for authentication.

The following protocols are supported:

Branch selection

On the next page choose which branch should be cloned from the remote repository:

Local Destination

On the next page define where you want to store the repository on your file system and define some initial settings.

  • Directory - The directory which will contain the Git repository. It will be created by the wizard if it does not yet exist.
  • Initial branch - Choose here which local branch will be created and checked out.
  • Remote name - Define a name for the remote repository. The default is "origin".
  • Import projects after clone - If checked, the repository is searched for eclipse projects. In this case the finish button is disabled and the wizard continues with the project selection. If not checked, the finish button is enabled.

Note that if you press "Next" on this page the repository will immediately be cloned by the wizard. This is necessary to find the eclipse projects. If you end the wizard with the "Cancel" button later on you will be asked if the clone should be deleted.

Import Projects

On the next page the Eclipse projects found in the cloned repository are presented.

  • Enable Git Team operations on imported projects - If this checkbox is selected the imported project are shared with the EGit Team provider. If it is not checked, the Team operations can still be enabled later on by choosing the project in eclipse and selecting Team -> Share Project...
