git-lfs-lock - Man Page

Set a file as "locked" on the Git LFS server


git lfs lock options path


Sets the given file path as "locked" against the Git LFS server, with the intention of blocking attempts by other users to update the given path. Locking a file requires the file to exist in the working copy.

Once locked, LFS will verify that Git pushes do not modify files locked by other users. See the description of the lfs.<url>.locksverify config key in git-lfs-config(5) for details.


-r name --remote=name

Specify the Git LFS server to use. Ignored if the lfs.url config key is set.


Writes lock info as JSON to STDOUT if the command exits successfully. Intended for interoperation with external tools. If the command returns with a non-zero exit code, plain text messages will be sent to STDERR.
