About changing the default branch

You can choose the default branch for a repository. The default branch is the base branch for pull requests and code commits. For more information about the default branch, see "About branches."

You can also rename the default branch. For more information, see "Renaming a branch."

You can set the name of the default branch for new repositories. For more information, see "Managing the default branch name for your repositories," "Managing the default branch name for repositories in your organization," and "Enforcing repository management policies in your enterprise."


To change the default branch, your repository must have more than one branch. For more information, see "Creating and deleting branches within your repository."

Additionally, you need to have admin access to a repository to change the default branch.
