Stash: How can I prevent users from deleting a remote Git branch?

We have users that have write access to the repository, but they also have rights to delete a remote branch. How can we prevent them from deleting remote brances?

Hi Alex,

The Stash Refchange Settings plugin looks like it'll do exactly what you want: https://bitbucket.org/atlassianlabs/stash-refchange-settings-plugin

It adds a "Branches and tags" configuration screen to your repositories:

However, it hasn't been officially released to the Atlassian Marketplace yet, so you'd need to build it from source and treat it as experimental.

To build it from source, install a recent JDK, the Atlassian SDK and run atlas-mvn clean install from the plugin repository. The built plugin artifact will be created at target/stash-refchange-settings-plugin-VERSION.jar and can be installed in your Stash instance via the plugin management console.

cheers,

Tim

I have just downloaded Atlassian Plugin SDK v5.0.4 but do not see a POM file in the repository folder, so running "atlas-mvn clean install" did not help. I noticed a number of batch files in the repository/bin folder but none with the name "refchange". Am I missing something?

I belive we have the same need as Alex Rodrigues does.
I found this similar question:

But it seems, to deny deletion of specific branches is not possible yet. :/
