# Reverting changes
The new `Revert` button allows you to revert any changes introduced by a Commit or a Merge Request.
_**Note:** This feature was [introduced][ce-1990] in GitLab 8.5._
---
GitLab implements Git's powerful feature to [revert any commit][git-revert]
with introducing a **Revert** button in Merge Requests and commit details.
## Reverting a Merge Request
After the Merge Request has been merged, a `Revert` button will be available to revert the changes introduced by that Merge Request:
_**Note:** The **Revert** button will only be available for Merge Requests
created since GitLab 8.5. However, you can still revert a Merge Request
by reverting the merge commit from the list of Commits page._
After the Merge Request has been merged, a **Revert** button will be available
to revert the changes introduced by that Merge Request:

You can revert the changes directly into the selected branch or you can opt to create a new Merge Request with the revert changes:

You can revert the changes directly into the selected branch or you can opt to
create a new Merge Request with the revert changes:
After the Merge Request has been reverted, the `Revert` button will not be available anymore.

It's important to mention that this new button will be only available for Merge Requests created since the **8.5** version. However you can still revert a Merge by reverting the merge commit from the list of Commits page.

After the Merge Request has been reverted, the **Revert** button will not be
available anymore.
## Reverting a Commit
You can revert a Commit from the Commit detail page:

In the same way like reverting a Merge Request you can opt to revert the changes directly into the target branch or create a new Merge Request to revert the changes:

Similar to reverting a Merge Request, you can opt to revert the changes
directly into the target branch or create a new Merge Request to revert the
changes:

After the Commit has been reverted, the `Revert` button will not be available anymore.

Please note that when reverting merge commits, the mainline will allways be the first parent, if you want to use a different mainline then you need to do that from the command line, here is a quick sample:
After the Commit has been reverted, the **Revert** button will not be available
anymore.
Please note that when reverting merge commits, the mainline will always be the
first parent. If you want to use a different mainline then you need to do that
from the command line.
Here is a quick example to revert a merge commit using the second parent as the
mainline:
```bash
git revert -m 2 7a39eb0
```
# Revert a merge commit using the second parent as the mainline
git revert -m 2 commit_hash
```
