How do I restrict creating tags to specific users?

Merlin Dienst November 9, 2022

I feel like the documentation is outdated and there are bugs.


First I tried to follow this information

However, this is not possible to use anymore. If you try to ad "refs/tags/**" to the branch restrictions, it says "Consecutive wildcard characters are not allowed" (even though they have special features according to branch permission patterns????

If you use single-asterisks (like "refs/tags/*"), or no asterisks at all ("refs/tags/"), the creation of tags still is not restricted.

Hi @Merlin Dienst,

Welcome to the community

I can see the documentation is actually referring to Bitbucket Server.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to restrict tags at the moment in Bitbucket Cloud.
We do have an existing feature request for it that can be located through this link. -
You can upvote and watch it for now so that you'll be notified of any updates from our team when the feature becomes available on Bitbucket Cloud.
Please do note that we don't have an exact ETA for the feature request as all new features will be implemented according to our policy here.

Right now, we only support branch restrictions and you can check the documentation here. - Use branch permissions
