Git: How to remove secondary remote repo

I had set up a 2nd remote repository by running this command

git remote set-url origin --push --add <another remote>

When I do a
git remote -v

origin https://url1.com/a.git (fetch)
origin https://url2.com/a.git (push)

How can I remove one of the remote repo?

Looking at
git remote --help
, I see that I can do

git remote remove origin
, but would that remove both of them?

What's the best practice to have multiple remote URLs? Should I have set different branch names instead of having 2


Your situation has only one remote, origin. To change the push value of the remote, without adding a new value, use git remote set-url without --add. To be extra-explicit, you can also specify the URL that you want to replace:

git remote set-url origin --push https://url1.com/a.git https://url2.com/a.git

This replaces your updated url2 with your original url1.
