Syntax

SHOW GIT BRANCHES [ LIKE '<pattern>' ] IN [ GIT REPOSITORY ] <repository_name>

For example, the following patterns return the same results:

... LIKE '%testing%' ...
... LIKE '%TESTING%' ...

. Default: No value (no filtering is applied to the output).

IN [ GIT REPOSITORY ] repository_name

Specifies the Git repository stage containing the branches to show.

Access control requirements

A role used to execute this SQL command must have the following privileges at a minimum:

Notes

READ

Note that operating on any object in a schema also requires the USAGE privilege on the parent database and schema.

For instructions on creating a custom role with a specified set of privileges, see Creating custom roles.

For general information about roles and privilege grants for performing SQL actions on securable objects, see Overview of Access Control.
