I've been away from using GitLab for about a month while I've been on vacation and the first time I tried to push a change to my Blog's code, I received the following error:
 Git push error
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree push -v origin refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master
Pushing to [email protected]:user/myrepository.git
remote: GitLab: You are not allowed to push code to protected branches on this project.
To [email protected]:user/myrepository.git
! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)
error: failed to push some refs to '[email protected]:user/myrepository.git'
Completed with errors, see above

This error came up every time I tried to do a push using SourceTree. I didn't try the command line client.

I figured this was a little odd since I am the master (owner) of this private repository and even though it was a protected branch according to my GitLab settings, I should have been able to push changes to it.

I logged into the GitLab website and checked whether I had any web hooks configured and I didn't, so that couldn't have been the problem.

I tried doing a push again and all of a sudden it worked! So I am guessing that logging into the GitLab website had reset my login session or something and let me do a push to my repository.
