To change the recently pushed
git commit message, you would need to do the following:
# 1. checkout the branch on your local git checkout <branch-name> # 2. amend the commit message git commit --amend -m "New message" # 3. force-push to update remote repository git push --force-with-lease <remote-name> <branch-name>
In the third step, you could also use the
--force flag instead of
--force-with-lease. However, when you're working in teams, it is generally a safer option to use
--force-with-lease as it will abort if there are any upstream changes to the same branch after your last commit. In contrast to this,
--force would destroy any pushed changes (after your last commit) to the same branch.
