Branch create restriction- using script runner

I am trying to create a groovy script to restrict branch creation based on the branch type selected. For example, we would like to restrict any new bugfix type branch creation.

I have tried using the "BranchCreationRequestedEvent", however I couldn't find any access methods to capture the branch type. getType() method from the Branch "CreationRequestedEvent" seems to return "BRANCH" instead of the actual branch type.


Any suggestions on how to capture the branch type?

Hi Mani.

You want this tutorial about pre-receive hooks.

You want to enforce naming conventions I suppose.

Do say if this helped or not.
