how to disable http for clone

We are using Stash version 3.7.1.

Is it possible to disable http for git?  I have been asked to force all developers to use SSH protocol for git access.

Documentation at does not seem to apply.

The option to disable HTTP for Git operations was added in Stash 3.11. An upgrade to at least that version will allow you to do this.

Oops - I never imagined this wouldn't be possible, but I've only been on Bitbucket since 4.0.

Uncheck the config option under Administration --> Server Settings --> HTTP(S) SCM hosting --> HTTP(S) enabled.

p.s.  Be sure to try out my add-on: Bit-Booster for Bitbucket Server.  It's the best commit graph add-on for Bitbucket Server. Improves your team's ability to see what's happening in your Git repositories. Don't forget to enable the included Bit-Booster hook to prevent foxtrot merges in master.
