403 error when pushing a new branch on remote server


- clone a repository for which you do not have branch creation rights

- using a terminal, create a new branch `develop`

- using a terminal, commit changes on `develop`

- using the web ui, setup your account to give it branch creation permission

- using a terminal, push changes by doing `git push --set-upstream origin develop`


Expected behaviour:

- push is done

- `develop` is pushed on the distant repository


Current behaviour:

- an error occurs:
remote: Forbidden
fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403

How I solved it for my case:

- using the web ui, I created `develop`

- using a terminal, I've setup my local branch to follow the distant one: `git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/develop develop`
- using a terminal, I pushed: `git push`
