Permission on project level Bitbucket server

hi i need a help for implement below scennario,

i have a main source code master branch named A.

i also have child branches named as B,C,D.

now i have same code on all of my branches there is one part custome code on my child branches(B,C,D).

Now main thing i want to do is when  i am changing my source code in master branch A. then it should automatically change in  child branch B,C,D. but the custom code on that branches should remain untouched.

Hi,

It sounds like what you're after is forks, but you say forks don't work for this - can you explain why?

Git does not work this way - Keeping the code changes in one branch separate from others is the intended behaviour of git. To do what you want, you'd have to have a script that gets kicked off by a web hook from the server (or you just run a cron periodically) that checks if there is any code on A that is not on B,C,D (e.g. `git log A ^B`) and if so, checkout the branch and merge A into it.

FYI: The Fork syncing feature in Bitbucket Server will only keep branches in sync if you do not have any changes in them specific to your repository.
