Restrict access to change a branch without a pull request using "Branch permissions" Edited


We use Bitbucket server v5.16.11.

We want to restriect access to change the master branch so that it can only be changes by merging pull requests.

We have added the following permissions for master under "Branch permissions":

  • Rewriting history
  • Deletion
  • Changes without a pull request
  • All changes

Without adding an exception for "All changes" I get "Insufficient branch permissions" when trying to merge a pull request against master. I have admin access to the project. But I don't want to give any exceptions for "All changes" because then it is possible to push changes directly to the master branch.
