Does your user has write access to the refs/heads/LXA-R2B folder?

It seems to be a problem with acces rights in your unix environment.

No only read access.

What does the service do?

It's probably creating a local version of your repository or the repository log so it can parse it and you can use it in jira. So it needs write access to that directory.

Michael - sorry for only finding this posting now. This error belongs to the Git Integration for JIRA add-on that we support: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.xiplink.jira.git.jira_git_plugin/?
