h2. Prerequisites
[Repo|] is a tool which is built on top of Git. QuickBuild utilizes the _repo_ command to interact with remote git-repo repository. If this command is not in system path, you will need to specify location of the command by configuring Repo plugin as below:


Further more, git-repo command (repo) location can be specified on a per-node basis by following below steps:
# Open Repo plugin setting page and define the repo path property as:
# For each node that does not have git-repo on system path, define the user attribute _repoPath_ to point to the actual repo command path like below:


*NOTE:* example above is just for demonstration, you can use any other user attribute name instead of _repoPath_.

As git-repo is built on top of git, the Git plugin and git command should be also configured properly. Please refer to [Working with Git] page for details.

h2. Creating a Repo Repository
You may refer to [this page|Scm Support Overview] on how to add a repository.

h3. Supported URL prefixes

* ftp\[s]://host.xz\[:port]/path/to/repo.git/
* rsync://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/.

If *https* is used, and your credential need password, you need first add the credential manually to the nodes which you want check out code to.
