Set user permissions

Apologies if I will be unclear in my explanation, but I am not yet abreast with the source control stuff.

So far I have always worked on my own on a project; a friend of mine is now joined. 

I've created a branch from him, but I am not sure how I can setup permissions in a way he can read-write only on his branch (assuming this is possible) thus leaving me the control to "merge" the code once approved.

Is this possible in BitBucket?

Hi Andrea!

As mentioned by Seth, we recommend that you do this at Bitbucket, as described in This will allow you to prevent your team-mate from pushing to specified branches and instead require her to file a Pull Request to ask you to merge her code.

SourceTree only manages your local repository, Bitbucket would be the place to do it, if it is possible. I'm going to remove the "sourcetree" tag from your question.

Thanks John, that was the article I was looking at smile

Did test the solution, but now it asks my password too, and it doesn't accept the one I use to log in in BitBucket. Any reason for this?
