Github has an admin setting to make a specific branch the "default" branch. We don't want people to ever check code into master, only "dev". So I'd like to make "dev" the default branch.
Does Stash have a way to do this?
Yes, in the settings for a repository you can specifiy the default branch for browsing. That doesn't prevent people from commiting to master though.
For this Stash also has allows you to limit write access to certain branches by setting up branch permissions: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Using+branch+permissions
Hope this helps!
You can get the repo's default branch via the REST api (/rest/api/1.0/projects/[PROJECT]/repos/[REPO]/branches/default).
Thanks that seems to work great. If you are interested, vis ScriptRunner or a Groovy Script, I am able to get the branch information this way too.
def repositoryService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(RepositoryService.class);
def refService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(RefService.class);
Repository rep = repositoryService.getBySlug("UP","myrepo");
int id = rep.getId();
// This returns a Branch Object refService.getDefaultBranch(rep).getDisplayId();
It should be on the first/main repository settings page/tab. You can see the branch selector here in this screenshot down the bottom right:
