Does Stash write a log entry when someone does a git push --force?

We've got a dev team that is claiming that Stash lost a bunch of commits that they did over a two week period. My guess is that someone did a push --force as they didn't have the pre-receive hook enabled on their repo.

To confirm that theory is there a Stash logfile entry that I can search for that is specific to pushes that are forced?

I started work on a plugin that would add audit records about force pushes, but got busy with other things. I hope to get some free time to get back to working on it.

In the meantime, you can vote for STASH-4204

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately not. If you're using 2.11 we've started to record those pushes in the database by default (to be surfaced in a later version with any luck). The table in question is sta_repo_push_activity if that helps?



We're running 2.11 now, but I think we upgraded AFTER the force push in question. I'll check.
