Remove/disable 'Merge' button

Hi there. Is it possible to remove or disable the 'Merge' button in Stash in a pull request?

Reason we need this is because currently we're hosting our repository on a different machine than Stash. Until we migrated both Stash and the repository to the same machine we would still like to use Stash for reviewing purposes. E.g. we would want to allow people to create pull requests just for the sake of letting others review.

We want to achieve this by mirroring the repository to the Stash machine and allowing read-only operations on the repository on the Stash machine. Hence, merging is not allowed and should be disabled.

If people have some other suggestions, that would be most welcome too.

Hi Tonni,

Your best bet is to write a small plugin that provides a merge-check. That way you can easily prevent pull requests from getting merged. Also consider providing a pre-receive-hook to prevent people from pushing to Stash until you're ready to migrate over.



Probably easier to just deny push access to master from the users using branch permissions.
