2019-11-18credential: move doc to credential.hHeba Waly
Move the documentation from Documentation/technical/api-credentials.txt to credential.h as it's easier for the developers to find the usage information beside the code instead of looking for it in another doc file. Documentation/technical/api-credentials.txt is removed because the information it has is now redundant and it'll be hard to keep it up to date and synchronized with the documentation in the header file. Documentation/git-credential.txt and Documentation/gitcredentials.txt now link to credential.h instead of Documentation/technical/api-credentials.txt for details about the credetials API.

2013-09-06Documentation: make AsciiDoc links always point to HTML filesSebastian Schuberth
AsciiDoc's "link" is supposed to create hyperlinks for HTML output, so prefer a "link" to point to an HTML file instead of a text file if an HTML version of the file is being generated. For RelNotes, keep pointing to text files as no equivalent HTML files are generated. If appropriate, also update the link description to not contain the linked file's extension.

2012-08-08Documentation: list git-credential in plumbing commandsMatthieu Moy
Commit e30b2feb1b (Jun 24 2012, add 'git credential' plumbing command) forgot to add git-credential to command-list.txt, hence the command was not appearing in the documentation, making it hard for users to discover it. While we're there, capitalize the description line for git-crendential for consistency with other commands. Signed-off-by: Matthieu Moy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2012-07-18credential: convert "url" attribute into its parsed subpartsJeff King
The git-credential command requires that you feed it a broken-down credential, which means that the client needs to parse a URL itself. Since we have our own URL-parsing routines, we can easily allow the caller to just give us the URL as-is, saving them some code.

2012-07-18docs/credential: minor clarity fixupsJeff King
The text in git-credential(1) was copied from technical/api-credentials, so it still talks about the input/output format as coming from git to the helper. Since the surrounding text already indicates that this format is used for reading and writing with git credential, we can just remove the extraneous confusing bits.

2012-06-25git credential fill: output the whole 'struct credential'Matthieu Moy
Instead of outputing only the username and password, print all the attributes, even those that already appeared in the input. This is closer to what the C API does, and allows one to take the exact output of "git credential fill" as input to "git credential approve" or "git credential reject".

2012-06-25add 'git credential' plumbing commandJavier Roucher Iglesias
The credential API is in C, and not available to scripting languages. Expose the functionalities of the API by wrapping them into a new plumbing command "git credentials". In other words, replace the internal "test-credential" by an official Git command.
