stash disable push on a repository branch

My build and release process takes several minutes from start to
finish, and during this time I want to disable pushes on the project
repository develop branch.

I found this promising plugin example

which solves part of my problem in that I now know how to disable
pushes to the ref via the Stash Web UI and pre-receive hooks. But I would like to extend
the Stash REST API so that I can programmatically disable pushes
to a ref during the release process, then enable pushes when the
release is finished.

Can someone offer guidance on how whether extending the Stash REST API
is possible, and if so how to start on such an extension?

I am also open to and grateful for other suggestions on how to
approach an automated solution.

If your build process can call the Stash API and remove the write permissions to the branch and then restore them after they are done, that should be a viable solution.


do we have solution for this?
