Unable to push to remote -

Our push operations are failing with the following error

remote: Hook com.carolynvs.stash.plugin.force_field.PreventForcePushPreReceiveHook failed. Error:

We have not enabled the "Reject Force Push" plugin in any of our repositories. Please advise

Hi Vijay, I think your Stash instance have this plugin enabled Force Field for Stash - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.carolynvs.force-field and your push operation is prevented by this PreReceive hook. Refer plugin document for more info. Taha

Yes..that was the plugin that was causing the issue. After uninstalling the same, we were able to go ahead with the Push operations. But what surprises me is that we had not enabled this plugin on any of the repositories. Then why was this blocking the pushes?

It sounds like there's a bug in the add-on that occurs even when it's not enabled for a repository. Stash 3.10+ has better force push prevention built in now, so that's likely a viable alternative.

I'm a little curious about that "remote: null" line - what do you see when you do 'git remote show' and 'git remote show origin'?
