Pre-commit hooks in Stash 3.7.0

How do you configure pre-commit hooks in Stash? I get an error when I try to commit with user ids which don't match the current user id:

remote: [POLICY] - Cannot push commits from other users
remote: [POLICY] - Current user is: phealy
remote: [POLICY] - Rejected Commit: Sylvain Rochette <> (8659967)

We are updating a git hub project but we want to host the project locally before we push all our changes back to git hub. We were trying to use our Stash instance to do this, but it has a pre-commit hook policy which prevents commits from users other than the current user.

We don't have hooks enabled for the repo under the Stash report Hooks settings, so I don't know where it's getting this from

I have found this page on configuring hooks:


You just log onto the database, get the id of the repo, and then delete the corresponding script which is enforcing the hook
