Git uses remote branches which are also called remote references. Remote branches are located in the remote repositories and not stored in the local system. But we can delete the remote branch in Git without storing it locally.
List Remote Git Branchs
Before deleting a remote branch listing it is very beneficial. The
git branch -a command can be used to list remote git branches. This lists all remote branches and their hash values with head information.
$ git branch -a
Delete Remote Git Branch
The remote branch can be deleted with the
git push command by providing the
--delete option and the remote branch name. In the following example, we delete the remote branch named
$ git push origin --delete master
