how to check branches permissions in bitbucket server using rest api ?


On our Bitbucket Server we want to add a control regarding the permissions on the branches.
As we open the create project and create repository rights to our users, we want to be sure to have at least a security on the branches management.

Is there anys way to check the branches permissions model using the rest API in order to automatise such a check ?

For instance, to be sure that any deletion of the master branch could be made only by a speficif group of users.

Thank you for your answer, this is what we were looking for.
