This is happening on a colleague's machine. I can still push to the remote via the command line but not via the SourceTree push dialog. We tried restarting Sourcetree and also restarting the laptop (running Windows 10 x64). I'm running the same version of SourceTree (3.2.6) on my machine without any problems (same OS). Any ideas how to trouble shoot this?
Hello! Your colleague might not be on the same version -- there was an issue with this in v3.2.5. You can manually download 3.2.6 here, or open Options > Updates and check for the new update which is now available to all users.
As a workaround if you're not able to upgrade: uncheck and then check the "push" checkbox in the push dialog for the empty entry you're attempting to push and it should work. Sorry about that!
Thanks for your reply Mike. When I go to the "Help -> About" in SourceTree on my colleague's laptop it tells me that version 3.2.6 is running.
And to clarify: his push dialog box has no entries at all even though he has multiple local branches (both local only and remote tracking branches), so your workaround isn't applicable. He just uses git push via the command line.
On my machine (with the same 3.2.6 version) I get my local branches listed and the remote tracking branch name (if they exist) or just a blank remote branch name for local only branches.
I suspect something odd is happening.
Can you have your colleague do the following:
If that doesn't fix it, then try and do the following:
From there, you should be able to run the same command and see if the output is the same.
Thanks for your help Mike. It turned out that my colleague had an older version of git (2.11.0) and that one didn't know the format option to the git branch command so instead of the list of branches on the remote, we got an error message. I believe the --format option to git branch was introduced with git 2.13.0. After we upgraded his system to git version 2.23.0 it all started to work again.
Guys I tried two things after I upgraded to version 2.3.6
a) First of all get the latest GIT
Remember to update both the versions if your system is a 64 bit machine, I observed that even the default 64 bit was downloaded, the system option still referred the 32 bit which was older
Once i updated the git exes to point to the latest , at least the big annoying issue of empty Push dialog got solved
$ git --version
git version 2.23.0.windows.1
b) There was another nagging issue, if you have created a fresh local branch and tried to push to remote, it wont show in the push dialog
You have to make sure the push branches is NOT set to matching value, the default or the upstream value solved this
I've been facing this issue for months but still can't figure it out. Like Manohar described, I create a fresh local branch, then try to push my changes so I can submit a PR with that branch. However, I never see my new branch in the Push dialog. I tried EVERY SINGLE "Push Branches" option there is. The behavior is exactly the same, regardless of what I set. I've just been using command-line to push to my changes.
Hi, I'm having the same issue with Source Tree 3.2.6: newly created local branches cannot be pushed because they do not appear in push dialog, I need to use command line and it's highly annoying.
Updating system Git to version 2.23.0 didn't fix it.
If I try to update embedded version, it downloads Git 2.21.0 and that doesn't solve the problem either.
Same issue here. Process Log shows all branches in the output, but new branches are not visible on Push UI Dialog, only old branches. Tried upgrading embedded git and with and without Lib2Git enabled.
Running command in terminal shows all branches.
Only difference between new and old branches are new branches do not have a remote name. After manually pushing, new branches still do not have a remote name, and still do not appear
Deleting local branch and pulling remote causes new branch to appear in push dialog, so I may have missed an option when pushing for the local to track remote after push.
Thanks, changing that setting does adjust the branches that appear in the pull dialog. It really should only adjust the items that are checked by default. Seems to be a change in behavior (or a change in default settings) between versions. Some of the options filter the pull dialog, others only affect with is checked by default, they provide a mix of different types, but nothing like the previous behavior for matching.
It may be an issue with how the branches are created, as old local-only branches are showing correctly.
using simple now shows all 3 types (old remote tracked, old local, new local),
