<div class="paragraph"><p>Modifies the index or directory cache. Each file mentioned is updated
into the index and any <em>unmerged</em> or <em>needs updating</em> state is
cleared.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>See also <a href="git-add.html">git-add(1)</a> for a more user-friendly way to do some of
the most common operations on the index.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The way <em>git update-index</em> handles files it is told about can be modified
using the various options:</p></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_options">OPTIONS</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="dlist"><dl>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--add
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        If a specified file isn&#8217;t in the index already then it&#8217;s
        added.
        Default behaviour is to ignore new files.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--remove
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        If a specified file is in the index but is missing then it&#8217;s
        removed.
        Default behavior is to ignore removed file.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--refresh
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Looks at the current index and checks to see if merges or
        updates are needed by checking stat() information.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
-q
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Quiet. If --refresh finds that the index needs an update, the
        default behavior is to error out. This option makes
        <em>git update-index</em> continue anyway.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--ignore-submodules
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Do not try to update submodules. This option is only respected
        when passed before --refresh.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--unmerged
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        If --refresh finds unmerged changes in the index, the default
        behavior is to error out. This option makes <em>git update-index</em>
        continue anyway.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--ignore-missing
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Ignores missing files during a --refresh
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--cacheinfo &lt;mode&gt;,&lt;object&gt;,&lt;path&gt;
</dt>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--cacheinfo &lt;mode&gt; &lt;object&gt; &lt;path&gt;
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Directly insert the specified info into the index. For
        backward compatibility, you can also give these three
        arguments as three separate parameters, but new users are
        encouraged to use a single-parameter form.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--index-info
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Read index information from stdin.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--chmod=(+|-)x
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Set the execute permissions on the updated files.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--[no-]assume-unchanged
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        When these flags are specified, the object names recorded
        for the paths are not updated. Instead, these options
        set and unset the "assume unchanged" bit for the
        paths. When the "assume unchanged" bit is on, Git stops
        checking the working tree files for possible
        modifications, so you need to manually unset the bit to
        tell Git when you change the working tree file. This is
        sometimes helpful when working with a big project on a
        filesystem that has very slow lstat(2) system call
        (e.g. cifs).
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>This option can be also used as a coarse file-level mechanism
to ignore uncommitted changes in tracked files (akin to what
<tt>.gitignore</tt> does for untracked files).
Git will fail (gracefully) in case it needs to modify this file
in the index e.g. when merging in a commit;
thus, in case the assumed-untracked file is changed upstream,
you will need to handle the situation manually.</p></div>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--really-refresh
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Like <em>--refresh</em>, but checks stat information unconditionally,
        without regard to the "assume unchanged" setting.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--[no-]skip-worktree
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        When one of these flags is specified, the object name recorded
        for the paths are not updated. Instead, these options
        set and unset the "skip-worktree" bit for the paths. See
        section "Skip-worktree bit" below for more information.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
-g
</dt>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--again
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Runs <em>git update-index</em> itself on the paths whose index
        entries are different from those from the <tt>HEAD</tt> commit.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--unresolve
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Restores the <em>unmerged</em> or <em>needs updating</em> state of a
        file during a merge if it was cleared by accident.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--info-only
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Do not create objects in the object database for all
        &lt;file&gt; arguments that follow this flag; just insert
        their object IDs into the index.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--force-remove
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Remove the file from the index even when the working directory
        still has such a file. (Implies --remove.)
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--replace
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        By default, when a file <tt>path</tt> exists in the index,
        <em>git update-index</em> refuses an attempt to add <tt>path/file</tt>.
        Similarly if a file <tt>path/file</tt> exists, a file <tt>path</tt>
        cannot be added. With --replace flag, existing entries
        that conflict with the entry being added are
        automatically removed with warning messages.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--stdin
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Instead of taking list of paths from the command line,
        read list of paths from the standard input. Paths are
        separated by LF (i.e. one path per line) by default.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--verbose
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Report what is being added and removed from index.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--index-version &lt;n&gt;
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Write the resulting index out in the named on-disk format version.
        Supported versions are 2, 3 and 4. The current default version is 2
        or 3, depending on whether extra features are used, such as
        <tt>git add -N</tt>.
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Version 4 performs a simple pathname compression that reduces index
size by 30%-50% on large repositories, which results in faster load
time. Version 4 is relatively young (first released in in 1.8.0 in
October 2012). Other Git implementations such as JGit and libgit2
may not support it yet.</p></div>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
-z
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
        Only meaningful with <tt>--stdin</tt> or <tt>--index-info</tt>; paths are
        separated with NUL character instead of LF.

</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--

<dd>
<p>
        Do not interpret any more arguments as options.

        Files to act on.
        Note that files beginning with <em>.</em> are discarded. This includes
        <tt>./file</tt> and <tt>dir/./file</tt>. If you don&#8217;t want this, then use

<h2 id="_using_refresh">Using --refresh</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p><em>--refresh</em> does not calculate a new sha1 file or bring the index
up-to-date for mode/content changes. But what it <strong>does</strong> do is to
"re-match" the stat information of a file with the index, so that you
can refresh the index for a file that hasn&#8217;t been changed but where
the stat entry is out of date.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>For example, you&#8217;d want to do this after doing a <em>git read-tree</em>, to link
up the stat index details with the proper files.</p></div>
</div>

<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_using_cacheinfo_or_info_only">Using --cacheinfo or --info-only</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p><em>--cacheinfo</em> is used to register a file that is not in the
current working directory. This is useful for minimum-checkout
merging.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>To pretend you have a file with mode and sha1 at path, say:</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><tt>$ git update-index --cacheinfo mode sha1 path</tt></pre>
</div></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p><em>--info-only</em> is used to register files without placing them in the object
database. This is useful for status-only repositories.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Both <em>--cacheinfo</em> and <em>--info-only</em> behave similarly: the index is updated
but the object database isn&#8217;t. <em>--cacheinfo</em> is useful when the object is
in the database but the file isn&#8217;t available locally. <em>--info-only</em> is
useful when the file is available, but you do not wish to update the
object database.</p></div>

<h2 id="_using_index_info">Using --index-info</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p><tt>--index-info</tt> is a more powerful mechanism that lets you feed

<li>
<p>

<h2 id="_using_8220_assume_unchanged_8221_bit">Using &#8220;assume unchanged&#8221; bit</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>Many operations in Git depend on your filesystem to have an
efficient <tt>lstat(2)</tt> implementation, so that <tt>st_mtime</tt>
information for working tree files can be cheaply checked to see
if the file contents have changed from the version recorded in
the index file. Unfortunately, some filesystems have
inefficient <tt>lstat(2)</tt>. If your filesystem is one of them, you
can set "assume unchanged" bit to paths you have not changed to
cause Git not to do this check. Note that setting this bit on a
path does not mean Git will check the contents of the file to
see if it has changed&#8201;&#8212;&#8201;it makes Git to omit any checking and
assume it has <strong>not</strong> changed. When you make changes to working
tree files, you have to explicitly tell Git about it by dropping
"assume unchanged" bit, either before or after you modify them.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>In order to set "assume unchanged" bit, use <tt>--assume-unchanged</tt>
option. To unset, use <tt>--no-assume-unchanged</tt>. To see which files
have the "assume unchanged" bit set, use <tt>git ls-files -v</tt>
(see <a href="git-ls-files.html">git-ls-files(1)</a>).</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The command looks at <tt>core.ignorestat</tt> configuration variable. When
this is true, paths updated with <tt>git update-index paths...</tt> and
paths updated with other Git commands that update both index and
working tree (e.g. <em>git apply --index</em>, <em>git checkout-index -u</em>,
and <em>git read-tree -u</em>) are automatically marked as "assume
unchanged". Note that "assume unchanged" bit is <strong>not</strong> set if
<tt>git update-index --refresh</tt> finds the working tree file matches
the index (use <tt>git update-index --really-refresh</tt> if you want
to mark them as "assume unchanged").</p></div>

<h2 id="_skip_worktree_bit">Skip-worktree bit</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>Skip-worktree bit can be defined in one (long) sentence: When reading
an entry, if it is marked as skip-worktree, then Git pretends its
working directory version is up to date and read the index version
instead.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>To elaborate, "reading" means checking for file existence, reading
file attributes or file content. The working directory version may be
present or absent. If present, its content may match against the index
version or not. Writing is not affected by this bit, content safety
is still first priority. Note that Git <em>can</em> update working directory
file, that is marked skip-worktree, if it is safe to do so (i.e.
working directory version matches index version)</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Although this bit looks similar to assume-unchanged bit, its goal is
different from assume-unchanged bit&#8217;s. Skip-worktree also takes
precedence over assume-unchanged bit when both are set.</p></div>

<h2 id="_configuration">Configuration</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>The command honors <tt>core.filemode</tt> configuration variable. If
your repository is on a filesystem whose executable bits are
unreliable, this should be set to <em>false</em> (see <a href="git-config.html">git-config(1)</a>).
This causes the command to ignore differences in file modes recorded
in the index and the file mode on the filesystem if they differ only on
executable bit. On such an unfortunate filesystem, you may
need to use <em>git update-index --chmod=</em>.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Quite similarly, if <tt>core.symlinks</tt> configuration variable is set
to <em>false</em> (see <a href="git-config.html">git-config(1)</a>), symbolic links are checked out
as plain files, and this command does not modify a recorded file mode
from symbolic link to regular file.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The command looks at <tt>core.ignorestat</tt> configuration variable. See
<em>Using "assume unchanged" bit</em> section above.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The command also looks at <tt>core.trustctime</tt> configuration variable.
It can be useful when the inode change time is regularly modified by
something outside Git (file system crawlers and backup systems use
ctime for marking files processed) (see <a href="git-config.html">git-config(1)</a>).</p></div>
