How to perform Fast-Forward pushes
Git has an option known as fast-forward updates. By default, this option is disabled in Beanstalk as it can have unintended consequences for those newer to Git. A worst case scenario could result in data loss as your repository history can be overwritten.
However, if you're familiar with how the feature works, Beanstalk allows you to turn this on for individual repositories.
Turn on Fast-Forward pushes
- Within your repository, navigate to Settings.
- On the general Settings page, there is a section to turn on Fast-Forward pushes. Select the option, and Save Changes.
For more details on fast-forwards, review the Git documentation.
