Difference between pull and fetch on sourcetree

Mark Steben December 7, 2022

I am new to sourcetree.  I currently update our remote devops repo with database ddl from my local folder, also defined to sourcetree.  Could you explain the difference between 'pull' and 'fetch'?  Trying to wrap my head around the concepts of sourcetree and the procedures built to get those concepts done.

Hi @Mark Steben,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The difference between Fetch and Pull is that Fetch tells the local repository that there are changes in the remote repository without bringing those changes into the local repository. I would recommend taking a look at Learn Git, it has tutorials, news and tips for Git.
