Hi Rob

Stash does not yet support anonymous access. I have raised a feature request in JIRA to track it's progress: STASH-2565. Please comment or vote on the issue to voice your support for it.



Hi there,

The new stash version has the feature to enable public access to the repositories as show on the documentation found on


Where are workarround. Create user 'stash' with password 'stash', and add him to obversers. Then you can use HTTP/HTTPS protocol with credentials of this user.

Another one solution is based on symlinks you created within folder on server by repositories names. You should create named symlinks. For example, if Stash home directory is /var/lib/stash, then /var/lib/stash/data/repositories contains repos by numbered directories. So, you can use plugin SysInfo (by Atlassian to know that directory you need), and then create symlink for this directory.

Create directory /var/lib/stash/symbolic-repos/. And put symlinks within it, something like /var/lib/stash/symbolic-repos/myrepo ->/var/lib/stash/data/repositories/5

After you create all needed named links for repositories you want to access by git:// protocol, you can just run command `git daemon` in that directory. Read manuals about this:

Also you need to create file in repository directory to enable anonymous access into Git repo.

We have "anonymous" access with a password already, but that is not really secure. I'd like for atlassian to really implement it correctly such that it avoids having to give a username and password to random people to access the repositories.

As for the git daemon that would work, except that people can make repositories in any project that they own and we would need to keep creating symlinks to those repositories for the git-daemon. The system is restricted in who has access to it (i.e. admin only).

If you look at you will see many people with the same problem, and this will only get worse since atlassian is stopping support for git repositories in fisheye come august.
