Merge part of develop branch into master

Cimplex November 4, 2020

Alright so I have two branches, master and develop, and I forgot to change branch after I published the code live so now I have something similar to this:

> Develop Commit 6 (origin/develop)
> Develop Commit 5
> Develop Commit 4
> Develop Commit 3 <- Where I want the master to be
> Develop Commit 2
> Develop Commit 1
> Master (origin/master)

So my question is, can I go to the master branch and merge Commit 1, 2 and 3 into the master branch? I tried to merge just Commit 3 but it looks like commit 1,2 wasn't included.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Cimplex ,

yes, that should work.

Where are you local branches positioned? Is your develop branch in the same place as origin/develop and master branch as origin/master branch?

If so, then just checkout to master, merge commit 3 to it (use commit id) and push master to origin like this:

git checkout master
git merge Develop Commit 3
git push origin master

If it is not working, what error message do you get? Thank you.
