Git file History provides information about the commit history associated with a file. To use it:
- Go to your project’s Repository > Files.
- In the upper right corner, select History.
When you select History, this information is displayed:
If you hover over a commit in the UI, the precise date and time of the commit modification are shown.
If you’re running
git from the command line, the equivalent command
git log <filename>. For example, if you want to find
information about a
README.md file in the local directory, run the
git log README.md
Git displays output similar to the following, which includes the commit time in UTC format:
