Stash supports a powerful type of pattern syntax for matching branch names (similar to pattern matching in Apache Ant).
These expressions use the following wild cards:
Matches one character (any character except path separators)
Matches zero or more characters (not including path separators)
Matches zero or more path segments.
Pattern used in branch permissions match against all refs pushed to Stash (i.e. branches and tags).
In git, branch and tag names can be nested in a namespace by using directory syntax within your branch names, e.g.
stable/1.1. The '
**' wild card selector enables you to match arbitrary directories.
**is automatically appended - e.g.
foo/will match any branches or tags containing a
refs/heads/master, whilst fully qualified tags look like
Also see the Ant documentation.
Matches and branch or tag named PROJECT-*, even in a name space.
e.g. refs/heads/PROJECT-1234, refs/heads/stable/PROJECT-new or refs/tags/PROJECT-1.1
Matches any branch or tag of 2 characters separated by a '.'.
e.g. refs/heads/1.1, refs/heads/stable/2.X or refs/tags/3.1
Matches all tags and any branches with 'tags' as a namespace.
e.g. refs/heads/stable/tags/some_branch, refs/tags/project-1.1.0
Matches all branches called master.
e.g. refs/heads/master, refs/heads/stable/master
