Permissions to merge to master


Is there global permissions for only specific team/individuals to merge to master.The idea is for developers to have rights to merge to develop and for the release team to merge to master based on pull requests.

Thank you

Hi Lester, 

it sounds like you're looking for branch permissions.

You can create branch-based restrictions to enforce the rules you have described.

Hope that helps, 


Thanks Felix.I'm assuming that you need to access each project and modify the branch restrictions or is this on a global level?

Branch permissions are controlled on a per-repository basis.
