Hi.  I am brand new to SourceTree and am having trouble cloning a project stored in Git.  Based on a tutorial that I took, I can't see how to do a clone (a new repository to my computer).  Could you please help or send me a link?  What is the difference between clone and pull request?

Hi Mark,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

To clone a repository you need the URL for it. If you are using Bitbucket you can log on to it, go to the repository and click clone, that will give you both the option to copy the URL or open up Sourcetree and have the URL field populated. If you copy the URL, go to Sourcetree and select File > Clone/New, same as opening a new tab and click clone. From here enter the URL, where you want to store your local copy and the bookmark name for it (displayed as the tab name).


Pull request allows developers to collaborate and do code reviews before any code changes are merged into a integration branch. See Making a Pull Request

If you want to learn more about Git I highly recommend, here you find good and easy to understand tutorials etc.

Thank you kindly for your quick answer.
