Rename Git Local and Remote Branches

rename_git_local_and_remote_branches

To rename a branch in Git we should use the git branch command followed by -m option.

  1. If you are required to change the current branch’s name in your project, then run the following:
    git branch -m new-branch
  2. If it is needed to rename another branch in your project, then run the following:
    git branch -m old-branch new-branch
    			
  3. After pushing the <old-branch> branch to the remote repository delete it:
    git push origin --delete <old-branch>
  4. Push the <new-branch> local branch and reset the upstream branch with the git push command:
    git push origin -u <new_branch>

    Or you can use an alternative way:

    git push --set-upstream origin new_branch   # Push the new branch, set local branch to track the new remote
