Sourcetree commit hash as ID


I would like to be able to use the Sourcetree commit hash in my automated fpga build as a unique identifier to ID the automated build.  I've been tasked to use the 40 nibble (hex char) value of the commit hash to do this.


I'm a novice Sourcetree user and would like to do the following:

1) In the repo directory structure find the file that contains the commit hash code.

2) copy that hash code into another text file where I have defined a parameter.  This .vh file is also a file in the repo.

3) In place of the existing file, hash_var.vh,  I would like my build script to use this new file and then run the build. 


Can you help

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

The commit hash is generated by Git, not Sourcetree, and is used to identify your commits. You could try and figure out the hash by looking at the blob object, but you can easily get the commit hash by using the git log command. Take a look at The anatomy of a git commit and Git Basics - Viewing the Commit History to learn more about the commit hash and how to get it.
