Save Local Changes


I am getting following message while running ‘bench update --upgrade’:

“Cannot proceed with update: You have local changes in app “erpnext” that are not committed.”

I do not want to run ‘git stash’. Because, I want to keep my customization/changes made locally.
Please advice, how save local changes.


When you make local changes, you are not able to update/upgrade ERPNext.

The suggested way to customize and add features is to have a custom app and implement your changes with Hooks, or try to have them implemented in the core code.
