Problems when pushing


I'm using sourcetree with I'm trying to push changes to the main repository. When I do, it doesn't work and I have this error message:

Pushing to
POST git-receive-pack (1186 bytes)
remote: One of your commit messages is missing a valid issue key:        
remote:   0cb639f: Tried to solve issue 120 by deleting some quotation marks and added commas for the comment section.        
remote: For more information, see        
 = [up to date]      0.0.1 -> 0.0.1
 = [up to date]      0.0.2 -> 0.0.2
 = [up to date]      0.0.3 -> 0.0.3
 = [up to date]      0.0.4 -> 0.0.4
 = [up to date]      0.0.5 -> 0.0.5
 ! [remote rejected] develop -> develop (pre-receive hook declined)
error: failed to push some refs to ''


The problems seems to be with the of commit 0cb639f, since it doesn't include precisely the issue number. How can I add that? I'm not able to go back to this commit and change the message.

Thanks, Loic

Hi Loic,

I'd recommend doing fixing this in the command line. As that commit has not been pushed yet you can change the commit message doing a rebase, as explained here.

Once the issue number has been corrected, you should be able to push from Sourcetree with no issues.

Let us know how it goes!


Thanks! The problem was that it wasn't the last commit, but a precedent one blocking it. However, I found how to solve this, thanks the link you gave me. Best, L

That's why a rebase was needed, otherwise and amend would have been sufficient :) 

Glad it's solved now!
