By default, tags are not pushed to remote server. For more details see [] below.
Tags can be listed based on a given pattern. All tags are listed if no pattern is given.
git tag [-l] [name-pattern]
git tag -l
Create a Tag
git tag '<tag-name>'
Pushing a Tag to a Remote Server
By default, the git push command doesn’t transfer tags to remote servers. You will have to explicitly push tags to a shared server after you have created them. This process is just like sharing remote branches - you can run git push origin <tagname>:
git push origin <tagname>
git push origin release-1.2.1
Pushing All Tags
git push origin --tags
git push --follow-tags
or set "push.followTags" to do this automatically on each push.
Remove a Tag
Remove a Tag Locally
git tag -d <tag-name>
Remove a Tag Remotely
If tag was pushed to a remote repository and now it should be removed, deleting it locally and then push --follow-tags is NOT sufficient.
You need to remove it locally, then:
git push origin :refs/tags/<tag-name-to-remove>
