Getting user info during hooks implemented at git level


I am trying to implement a hook at the git level. I have a scenario as below:

-> I have a user who wants to create a branch. In my pre-receive hook, I am trying to fetch which user did the push, based on usernames stored in stash (using STASH API)..

Meaning, lets says I have user ishan and user ishah and both have same user info. (same name and email address)

Q: How does stash track which user is pushing into a project in STASH ???

-> For more, lets say "ishan" has permissions to write into that project and "ishah" does not have the permissions. How would stash differentiate between the users and limit ishah from not pushing but allowing ishan to push..

Hi GP,

Sorry for the delay. Are you talking about a Stash hook, or a git script?

If the former, you can use StashAuthenticatedContext to get the current Stash user. This class can be injected into the constructor of your pre-recieve hook.

If it's the latter you can use $REMOTE_USER which will contain the current Stash username.

I hope that helps?
