Git Submodule Update After Pull A Brach

- 1 answer

I'm trying to make update on submodules by that:

git submodule update --recursive

And the .gitmodules is:

[submodule "test"]
    path = test
    url = https://[email protected]/test/test.git

Another developer has updated .gitmodules on develop branch like that:

[submodule "test"]
    path = test
    url = [email protected]/test/test.git

I've followed these codes:

git pull origin develop
git checkout develop
git submodule update --recursive

I've checked the .gitmodules file, it has changed, but it stil ask me the testuser's password. I couldn't understand what have done wrong.

git submodule update doesn't use .gitmodules directly — it uses URLs from .git/config copied there by git submodule init. When you need to update the URLs from changed .gitmodules run git submodule sync.
