Central Git Repository Setup

You may choose any central git repository though it will need to be able to fire the same kind of trigger as GitHub when a push occurs. For this reason, we recommend that you use GitHub. If the idea of creating a public repository does not work for you, then pay for the ability to create private repositories in GitHub. LANSA's demonstration repositories are all private.

1.  Create or login to your GitHub account.

     The type of GitHub account dictates what security options are available for auto-deployment machines.

2.  Create an empty repository. The names that the LANSA demonstration uses indicate the target location and the partition. This is not necessary. You can call your repository anything you like. You do not need to initialize with a README nor add a license or add ".gitignore". as you will be overwriting the repository with the IDE git repository. The example shows Private repository selected. To use this option you will need to pay for the ability. It may suit your organisation better if you choose a private repository. Here is an example of the repository settings:

3.  Once you have created the repository a screen of choices will be presented for how to continue with your repository. Take the first option - the Quick Setup option - by clicking on the button indicated in the graphic following to copy the git repository address:
