Unable to delete remote branch on stash

E.g.

$ git push origin test
Total 0 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
To ssh://git@stash.it.hk.hibm.hsbc:7999/test/felix_test.git
* [new branch] test -> test

$ git branch -d test
Deleted branch test (was 011589d).

$ git push origin :test
remote: error: denying ref deletion for refs/heads/test
To ssh://git@stash.it.hk.hibm.hsbc:7999/test/felix_test.git
! [remote rejected] test (deletion prohibited)
error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://git@stash.it.hk.hibm.hsbc:7999/test/fe
lix_test.git'

 

I'm using Stash version 2.12.4.

There is a setting (probably a plugin/hook) that stops you from deleting branches on the server. Check the Hooks page of the repo.
