Intellij git plugin track local branch


I would like to use git in Intellij as VCS. I only want to use it local.

But I am having problems in finding the option to track a branch. I can create new branches from the master branch but I can´t configure anywhere to track the master branch.
I already searched in the documentation and on google but I only can  find information for the Intellij v11 but on v12 the menus were changed  so I can´t find that option.

Does anyone know how to configure this correctly working with local git?

Hi Peter,

There is no way to set up tracking of the local branch in IntelliJ. You have to manually edit .git/config or use Git commands in the command line for that.

However, it is not a common use case to track one local branch from another. Why do you need it?
