Is it possible to migrate a repo from Git to another SCP Global account, by holding the history?

Hi guys,

I have SAPUI5 apps in the Git Service provided by SAP Cloud Platform in Global Account A and want to migrate the repository to the Git Service of another Global Account B. Addionallty I want to keep the history created in the first Git (commits, timestemps, etc.).

I am using the same User in both accounts.

I couldn't find a way until now, would be nice, if someone could help me.

Kind Regards,

    So here we go with full details:

    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents>git clone<SubaccountA>/gittest
    Cloning into 'gittest'...
    remote: Counting objects: 12, done
    remote: Finding sources: 100% (12/12)
    remote: Total 12 (delta 0), reused 10 (delta 0)
    Unpacking objects: 100% (12/12), done.
    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents>cd gittest
    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents\gittest>git remote add test<SubaccountB>/gittest
    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents\gittest>git remote
    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents\gittest>git fetch test
    warning: no common commits
    remote: Counting objects: 2, done
    remote: Finding sources: 100% (2/2)
    remote: Total 2 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
    Unpacking objects: 100% (2/2), done.
     * [new branch]      master     -> test/master
    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents\gittest>git merge --allow-unrelated-histories test/master
    C:\Users\gwolf\Documents\gittest>git push test
    Enumerating objects: 13, done.
    Counting objects: 100% (13/13), done.
    Delta compression using up to 4 threads.
    Compressing objects: 100% (8/8), done.
    Writing objects: 100% (12/12), 1.22 KiB | 250.00 KiB/s, done.
    Total 12 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
    remote: Processing changes: refs: 1, done
       470c9c7..914719c  master -> master

    This results in the complete history being available in the SubaccountB:

    Yes, that is possible. You clone the repository from sub-account A to your local system, add the repository from sub-account B as a remote and push it there. I would suggest to have a look at the great OpenSAP Course: SAP Cloud Platform Version Control with Git.
