About source code imports using the command line

You can use command line tools to import source code and its revision history to GitHub Enterprise Server.

You can use the command line to import source code and, if the code has been tracked using a version control system like Git, the code's revision history.

All of these tools import source code and revision history, only. If you also want to import your settings and your collaboration history, such as issues and pull requests, you'll need to use more advanced tools. To determine the best tool to use for your migration, see "Planning your migration to GitHub."
