How to prevent pull request creation for a particular branch on bitbucket? Edited

I have a project repository on a bitbucket server behind a proxy. I am the administrator for the repository in concern. The ask was to freeze a particular release branch (say, release/1.0) and create a new release branch (say, release/2.0) branching out of release/1.0.

Is there a way I can prevent the developers from creating a pull request for merging their feature changes to release/1.0? Instead, they should be creating pull requests to merge their changes only to release/2.0.

Like in the pull request creation page, the target branch dropdown should not show the value - release/1.0. But it should show release/2.0.

I will be grateful and greatly appreciate for any leads regarding this problem

Note: I have also raised a JIRA ticket as a suggestion to address this situation.

Hi Satyajit,

I found a ticket in the BitBucket Public IssueTracker titled Add ability to disable pull requests (BB-7143) that was closed as wontfix in 2013 but people are still commenting on the ticket.

I did not see a ticket in JAC.  You could create a JAC ticket and link the ticket here and in the BitBucket Public Issue Tracker so the Community can vote on the issue. 



Sounds good to me. Thanks Branden.

@Branden McElveen As suggested by you, I raised a JIRA ticket as a suggestion and added the JIRA ticket link in the description of this thread question. You were talking about a Bitbucket public issue tracker too, how do I get there? Or just adding the JIRA link here in the description would suffice?
