Why Devtron takes GitOps Configuration?

Devtron uses GitOps and stores configurations in git; Git Credentials can be entered at Global Configuration > GitOps which is used by Devtron for configuration management and storing desired state of the application configuration. In case GitOps is not configured, Devtron cannot deploy any application or charts.
