Issues setting up SSH for pipelines (semantic release)


I'm trying to set up semantic-release in a project. I'm using Bitbucket Pipelines. This works on a feature branch, but pushing back to master gives issues as it's not allowed by the branch permissions. I've set up a user that is excluded from the global rules.

For testing purpose, I've copied the branch permissions to the feature branch.

I've tried a few things, I've set up Git authentication to change the user, used GIT_CREDENTIALS to set my user and added a private and public SSH key specifically for this repository.

As long as the branch permissions are enabled, I seem to keep getting this error:

  stderr: 'remote: Permission denied to update branch feature/changelog.\nTo\n ! [remote rejected]   HEAD -> feature/changelog (pre-receive hook declined)\nerror: failed to push some refs to \'\'',
