Hi @GodSvarog,

I'm afraid that it is not possible to enforce this. If a user has at least read access to a repository, they get access to all branches and they can clone either the entire repo or a certain branch only.

You can prevent certain users from pushing to certain branches with branch permissions, but it is not possible to enforce what type of clone they will make.

i had already found a solution. i need just to make other repository and push to it necessary branch.
