git symbolic-ref

 
Read, change, or delete files that store references. More information: https://git-scm.com/docs/git-symbolic-ref.
 
  • Store a reference by a name:
     
    git symbolic-ref refs/{{name}} {{ref}}
     
  • Store a reference by name, including a message with a reason for the update:
     
    git symbolic-ref -m "{{message}}" refs/{{name}} refs/heads/{{branch_name}}
     
  • Read a reference by name:
     
    git symbolic-ref refs/{{name}}
     
  • Delete a reference by name:
     
    git symbolic-ref --delete refs/{{name}}
     
  • For scripting, hide errors with --quiet and use --short to simplify ("refs/heads/X" prints as "X"):
     
    git symbolic-ref --quiet --short refs/{{name}}
