Hi Aditya, this issue has already been reported at BSERV-9340. As a workaround:

  • Add an email for the user
  • Create the branch in working directory and push to repo

You can add yourself as a watcher to the bug ticket to be notified of further updates.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Best regards,
