Is there a way to lock down MASTER branch priodically?

Hello people,

Is there a cool or easy way, in Bitbucket, to lock down MASTER branch periodically (say, every Friday)?

This will be an (admittedly brute-force) approach to prevent deploys on Friday which my organisation doesn't want to do.

Or, do I need to get more into the full-fat CI tools to achieve this kind of thing?

Many thanks,

Daniel

Are you on Bitbucket Cloud or Bitbucket Server?

If you're on Bitbucket Server, take a look at this answer, which shows how to PUT/DELETE json against the branch-permissions API end-point.

You could use cron to apply/remove a "master-is-read-only" branch-permission periodically.

Great, many thanks. So, in conclusion it's "they have an API which you can use"! That's definitely schedulable and exploitable.

If you're using Bitbucket Cloud, you can use https://developer.atlassian.com/bitbucket/api/2/reference/resource/repositories/%7Busername%7D/%7Brepo_slug%7D/branch-restrictions#post to set up or remove branch restrictions using the API.
