How to connect to external GIT
To connect to an external git, the process is as easy as configuring your:
- GIT Repo URL: e.g.
- Path: path to project inside the repo. e.g.
- Email and username
- Access token
Please refer below video for step-by-step example:
How to commit changes
When you create your first project,
dev branch is automatically created for you. This is to ensure that no edits/commits are
made directly on the
main branch and a proper CICD flow is followed during development.
Creation of first project and commit changes to
How to create/checkout branch
Currently we are on
dev branch which has our first_pipeline.
Now let's see how to go back to our
main branch and also create a new
second_branch from the main branch.
How to merge changes
Let's merge our
dev branch into
How to Pull changes
Pulling changes from a branch is as simple as in any GUI based git interface.
Let's pull our
main branch into the empty
second_branch which we created earlier. Please refer the below video for step-by-step example:
Currently pull only from
main branch to any specific branch is supported.
How to release a branch
Once the changes are merged, we can
release a branch straight from the UI itself.
Databricks scheduler changes would only come into effect once the project is released.
How to resolve conflicts during merging
Now let's create a project in
third_branch with same name as
first_pipeline and put a different path in dataset.
Post this once we pull the changes from
main into this branch, it would have conflicts as first_pipeline exists both in
One way is to use the git interface directly to resolve conflicts between branches.
Or we can use the simple merge UI on prophecy to resolve the conflicts
Let's see in the video below on how to resolve conflicts using simple merge on prophecy:
How to use fork per usage GIT storage model
During the creation of project there is an option to choose fork per usage as GIT Storage model. When you fork a repository, you create a copy of the original repository (upstream repository) but the repository remains on your GitHub account.
When using the fork per usage GIT storage model while creating a new project, apart from the
upstream repository details, below extra
pop-up would come for details of
Let's create a fork of our original repository and pull
main branch from original repository to our newly created forked repository.
Now to pull main branch from upstream repository or from origin of current repository is as simple as clicking on below
Pull Upstream or
Pull Origin options
- Any changes made in forked repository would not effect the
upstream repositoryand would only reflect in the
- Please follow the normal git flow for raising pull requests to the
original repository(upstream repository) from the
