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.
The name and email information provided are retrieved from the Git configuration of the contributor when a commit is made.
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:
