Importing GitLab repository into group loses branch protections
When creating a project from a GitLab export in a group, branch protections are lost.
Allowed to merge and
Allowed to push show
1 group. However, when you open the drop-down, the group is not shown. This also prevents any member of the project or group, including
Maintainers, to push or merge to the protected branch. You have to manually add a role/group/user in the project settings before they can merge or push to the protected branch. You are also unable to remove the
1 group from showing up in the drop-down.
In this case, the export was created in 10.8.4-ce and imported into 11.0.x-ee
Steps to reproduce
- Create an export from a project
- Import project into a group space
- Navigate to project settings -> repository and notices the protected branch permissions
- As a member of the group, try to push to merge to a protected branch
What is the current bug behavior?
Branch protection permissions are lost. The permissions on the imported project show
1 group, but you are unable to see what group it is and no one can push or merge
What is the expected correct behavior?
Branch protections should be preserved.
