visibility 175 access_time 2 years ago languageEnglish

Issue background

From Visual Studio 16.6, local git tags cannot be pushed to the remote. The issue was reported by:

This was done by purpose. 


Visual Studio team has added tags push features back into Git Changes window in version 16.9 Preview 1 or later preview versions.

For Visual Studio 16.8.4, you still cannot push tags directly like you could do in the past.

To push tags to remote, we can do the following:

  1. Download Visual Studio 16.9 preview versions.
  2. Or Open Command Prompt window and submit the changes there directly.
    • Tools -> Command Line -> Developer Command Prompt
    • Type the following command to push tags to remote (origin):
      git push origin --tags
