Force field addon

I installed this plugin to protect my master branch.

However, I am still able to push --force to master. How can I prevent the force push to master? What step am I missing?


$ git checkout master
Already on 'master'
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
$ git reset --hard
HEAD is now at 0a0cb0c push should get blocked. force again
$ vi file1
$ git add file1
$ git commit -m "push should fail"
[master 1ca0131] push should fail
1 file changed, 1 insertion(+)
$ git push --force origin master

@Carolyn Van Slyck (who maintains that add-on) might be able to weigh in here.

Installing the add-on and enabling it in a repository are 2 different things. Make sure you did enable this hook for this particular repository.
