Git - trigger build commit

8 points
Created by:

In this short article we want to show how to push empty commit to remote with Git - called trigger commit too. That kind of operation is useful when we want to force project rebuilding on remote and we dont want to send any changes (useful for Jenkins, GitLab, etc. after pipeline failed because of non current project issue).

Quick solution:

git commit --allow-empty -m "Trigger build"
git push

When we don't want to run local tests, rebuilding etc. we can use:

git commit --no-verify --allow-empty -m "Trigger build"
git push --no-verify
