Git push returns error code 402

When pushing to Bitbucket Server 1.0.0, it responds with the error code 402.

$ git push url directory
Cloning into 'directory'...
error: The requested URL returned error: 402 while accessing url
fatal: HTTP request failed


This may be caused by one of two things:

  1. Your Bitbucket Server License has expired.
  2. You have configured too many users for your current Bitbucket Server license.

Bitbucket Server 1.0.1 and above do not respond with a 402, instead they give an explicit error description in the output of the git command.



Contact your administrator and let them know. You will have to renew your license, upgrade to a license that supports more users or reduce the number of active users.
