Occasionally you may need to remove and replace your current code repository, while keeping the existing code intact.
To copy your code from an existing Cloud Platform repository to a new repository:
Clone the code from the existing repository to ensure you have a recent, accurate version of your codebase.
Open a command prompt window, and then run the following command to ensure you have the most up to date code commits:
Use the following command to add the new code repository as a remote, which will enable you to push code to the new repository using the same method as the origin:
git remote add new-origin
Validate that the new remote origin has been added properly by using the following command:
git remote -v
Push the mirrored code to the new origin:
git push --mirror new-origin git push --all new-origin git push --tags new-origin
With the following commands, rename the origin to be the new repository:
git remote rename origin old-origin git remote rename new-origin origin
Your code repository should now have a clean, working copy of the previous code.
