class connector_types.connector_type_git.ConnectorTypeGIT

Run git commands on a repository.

Note that the git connector type allows you to interact with your git repository, but does not automatically synchronise the flow scripts in your git repository with your Cloudomation account. To synchronise flow scripts and settings from git into your Cloudomation account, use the Git Integration.

Two commands are available:

  • get
  • metadata

get: fetch the specified reference and return the files. The files can either be returned in the outputs of the connection or placed in cloudomation using the "files_path" argument.

metadata: Only get the metadata of the specified reference.
