Reverting a commit

You can revert a specific commit to remove its changes from your branch.

When you revert to a previous commit, the revert is also a commit. The original commit also remains in the repository's history.

Tip: When you revert multiple commits, it's best to revert in order from newest to oldest. If you revert commits in a different order, you may see merge conflicts.

  1. Click History.
    The history tab selected in the sidebar
  2. Right-click the commit you want to revert and click Revert This Commit.
    The Revert option above the diff view
