downloading data

How to download user data from before it is decommissioned. going away June 6, 2022

On June 6, 2022, the server will be taken offline permanently. See decommissioning for more info about this process.

Users are encouraged to download their data from before June 6.

An active Illinois account is required to access your data. If you've left the university and your account is no longer active, you will not be able to access this data. 

Archiving your data from

If you need to retain a copy of code checked into, you should do so before the server is taken offline on June 6. They won't be available after June 6.

With git, that's fairly straightforward: a git pull or git fetch can synchronize down the repository of git commits and git history to your local computer. Especially if that data is unchanged recently, you may already have a downloaded copy, but you should check before the server is taken offline if you think you would need it in the future.

If you've used other services in your repositories besides commits (like Pull Requests, Issues, Wiki, Project) those sources won't be reflected in the git pull. You're invited to review those from the website and see if there's any data you need to save from there.
