Branches are no longer listed for push after rename local branch name

SourceTree can push changes from local branch to remote branch fine. 

But after renaming local branch,  which causes local and remote branch have different name, then Push window no longer list those branches.

If change local branch name back, branch back to list in Push popup window. 

Tested on latest SourceTree and embeded Git as of 1/21/2021.

I just had the same issue. The way I fixed it was:

  • Rename the local branch
  • Check out the renamed branch
  • Open the Terminal from the toolbar
  • git push --set-upstream remote-name new-branch-name
  • Delete the old branch from the remote

My renamed branch is now in listed in the push menu again

Once I download the repo to my local machine. Any changes I make I push them using feature branch.

My feature branch can have any name of my choice.

Once in Git I always make sure I am inside the right branch before committing. Otherwise nothing will get pushed

What is the error you are getting?



Hi Fadoua,

No error. As said in the question, just renamed branch no longer listed in Push window. 

Other tools like Git Extension has no such problem, it does not require local and remote branch to have same name.  

Ocz, I can always do it in cmd line.  I am reporting a SourceTree  UI bug.  Should easy to fix.
