How do I prevent deletion of tags from Bitbucket cloud verison?

Asha Kumari September 27, 2018

I need to ensure that people on my team are not accidentally deleting the release tags. I tried various branch permissions and attached is one of them.


Despite setting up the branch permission, anyone on the team is able to delete the tag.

I have a similar branch permission setup for master and that seems to be working. Is the problem with the pattern I am using? If so, what is the right pattern?

In Server 5.3, we use refs/tags/v/** to prevent deletion. the second * is required.

Hi @tdacox,

This thread is about cloud Bitbucket and cloud Bitbucket does not allow consecutive wildcard usage (i.e., the second * is not allowed).

Apparently, that is not supported yet (BB-12083*).

Thanks for that information.

Does that mean, there is no way to prevent tag deletion on Bitbucket cloud version today?

Seems like that's the case.

I can believe that Bitbucket Cloud can't prevent tag deletion yet, Github is in front of bitbucket
