Resetting the local deployment branch to match the origin’s version using git

Branches, such as either [insert branch name] or [insert branch name], serve as markers with arrows indicating a specific commit in the graph. It is important to verify that you are indeed on the designated [insert branch name] branch using [insert command], as [insert command] alters the position of the current branch, which is the branch being referred to.


Question:

I have a local branch named
deployment
which is also available on
origin
. Is there a way to reset my local deployment branch to match the state of
origin
‘s deployment branch?

Something like the following:

git fetch origin
git reset --hard origin/deployment

Would that be possible?


Solution:

Please exercise caution as
git reset --hard
disregards any uncommitted changes, specifically those in the working tree or the index (staging area). Additionally, ensure that you are indeed on the
deployment
branch with
git checkout deployment
, as
git reset
consistently alters the position of the current branch, which is indicated by
HEAD
.
