How to setup back merge release branch changes to main line

We are trying to use automatic back merging with the Gatekeeper strategy for our release branches (think Gitflow). This has worked pretty much flawlessly for a long time, but now we are having trouble to get it working again after a user that is admin cleaned up all of his SSH keys registered in Bitbucket server. Bamboo is unable to push changes to our mainline branch. We have tried adding a new user specifically for Bamboo and give it the correct R/W permissions on our mainline branch, but the merge still doesn't work. We are having difficulties finding documentation that is clear on how to setup the wanted behaviour from scratch.

A couple of the things we have tried/looked in to:

* Application link - setup correctly and working between applications. Didn't help.
* New user specifically for Bamboo - didn't help
* Adding user keys to Trusted Keys in Bamboo - didn't help
* Adding user permissions to Linked Repository - didn't help.

Exception during push:

Would really appreciate help regarding this!

Hi Magnus

Were you able to solve this? I have a similar problem.

Using the branch updater stategy Bamboo fails doing the push saying it has write permissons only

Most probably you need to visit the Bitbucket Server repository definition in Bamboo and re-save it. This should regenerate the SSH key needed for Bamboo to work.

If you still experience problems please contact Bamboo Support.
