Shallow update not allowed

Hi there!


I'm trying to deploy a commit, but I'm getting a response that shallow update isn't allowed. In what way can I fix this issue?


Here's the log:

remote: validating
remote: - warning: changes will be deployed to production application ...
remote: - info: validating files in XXX ...
remote: - info: found application servers ...
remote: - success: validation complete!
! [remote rejected] master -> master (shallow update not allowed)
error: failed to push some refs to ''

Hi @finnruijter,

Welcome to the Community!

It looks like you are trying to push changes with a shallow clone of the git repository, which isn't an operation you can perform.

I'd recommend checking out this post here for more details on what you need to do to resolve your issue:

Basically, you are going to either need to perform a full clone (not a shallow one) or the push that you are performing needs to target the specific branch you have checked out.

I hope that helps!

Hello @finnruijter 
try my solution

- step:
- apk add git openssh-client
- git remote add [name] <repo_url>
- git remote -v
- git pull
- git checkout [branch]
- git filter-branch -- --all
- git push -u sync [branch]

Work for me
