Azure Data Studio ships with a Git source control manager (SCM), but you still need to install Git (version 2.0.0 or later) before these features are available.

Open an existing Git repository

  1. Under the File menu, select Open Folder...
  2. Browse to the folder that contains your files tracked by git, and select Select Folder. Subfolders in your local repository are okay to select here.

Initialize a new git repository

  1. Select Source Control, then select the git icon.

Working with Git repositories

Azure Data Studio inherits its Git implementation from VS Code, but doesn't currently support additional SCM providers. For the details about working with Git after you open or initialize a repository, see Git support in VS Code.
