Specify the repository to clone either as a remote URL (e.g. ssh://user@server:port/path), or, if the repository is locally available on your file system, as a file path. In the Selection step you can configure whether submodules should be fetched as well: usually you will have this option selected, because submodules are an integral part of the main repository you are cloning. You should deselect this option deselect Include Submodules only, if you do not wish to receive certain submodules. For details, refer to Submodules. Similarly, you will want to fetch the entire repository usually, including all heads and tags. If you are only interested in a specific head (branch) or tag, you may restrict the clone heredeselect Fetch all Heads and Tags. This allows you to specify a single branch to fetch and optionally to not Fetch all commits but Fetch Only the Latest x commits. Note that a few Git commands do not work properly for such partial repositories (e.g. Pull with Rebase). In the subsequent steps you have to provide the path to the local directory where the clone should be created and a few clone options.
