How to force push a single branch?

git push origin +branch_name

To force push a single branch use git push origin +branch_name, with the plus sign (+) before the branch name.

If you want to force push every branch instead, use git push --force.

Layer 1
Terminal Example
git status
On branch new-branch
Your branch and 'origin/new-branch' have diverged,
and have 1 and 1 different commits each, respectively.
  (use "git pull" to merge the remote branch into yours)

nothing to commit, working tree clean

git push origin new-branch
 ! [rejected]        new-branch -> new-branch (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to ''
hint: Updates were rejected because the tip of your current branch is behind
hint: its remote counterpart. Integrate the remote changes (e.g.
hint: 'git pull ...') before pushing again.
hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.

git push origin +new-branch
