pre-receive hook declined issue

Hi ,

We have on-prem bitbucket server which was working untill now. 

I am unable to push the code anymore to the repo as its throwing hook decline error.

I checked the hooks are disabled and verified the permissions at global /repo and branch and added the user manually but no luck also tried creating new branch and push but still did not work.

I am using windows GIT bash and BitBucket server is hosted on windows 2008 server

$ git push origin test

I'm also facing the same issue. Does anybody has solution for this.

@Vijay Dharman did it resolved for you?

Just today!!

! [remote rejected] feature/cms -> feature/cms (pre-receive hook declined)
error: failed to push some refs to ''


I didn't set any pre-receive hooks though, so I went to settings on in Chrome, but then, it crashed with this error.

@atlassian Team, can you please look into this urgently, as we cannot push any code currently.
