Hi, I've been testing branch permissions on Stash v2.5 and I can't make it work. I've tested giving only read permissions on a certain repo R to a certain user U, but adding a permission to a B branch. Trying to push to branch B using U, I get "Insufficient permissions", the same happens when I try using Advanced permissions and specify a regular expression.
I also tryed giving read permissions on the project level, getting the same results. If I give write permissions to U either on Project or Repo level I can obviously push on B but also on any other branch. I don't know what I am doing wrong really, is there a bug? Is there a missing configuration somewhere?
Branch permissions are in fact restrictions on top of project and repository level permissions. In order to write to a repository you still require write access to the project or repository. Branch permissions allow you to restrict this access so that only select people can push to specific branches.
Put another way both repository permissions and then branch permissions are checked independently of each other. When you push it is first checked that you have write access then afterwards it is checked which branches you are updating and whether you have an associated branch permission to update the branch.
Thanks for the answer Jason, so what you are saying is that if I have a Branch B on Repo R with permission for only user U1, and I have U2 with write permissions for B and not for B, he will not be apbe to push on B? In other words Repo permission are not inhereted to Branches? Or at least not to branches that have literal permissions?
I am going to pipe in here. I have the following in an Eval version of 2.6
Project - User A has read permissions
Repo - User A has read permissions
Branch A of repo - User A has permissions
Branch B of repo - User A has no permissions
I am not able to write to either branch of the repo.
What I need to be able to do is have a project with one repo under it and 2 branches of that repo called
Dev is open to user to A to push to
Master needs to be locked down to User A.
How would I set up these permissions?
