Permission Issue: Unable to Push Commit in GitLab

What happens

I’m trying to push a commit to the challenge repository but am encountering issues.

What do you understand or find about that problem

Upon checking my current permissions in GitLab, I found that I am listed as a “Reporter”. This role, from what I understand, does not allow me to create new branches or push changes.

Did you try any workaround? What did you do?

I attempted to push my changes directly, but was unsuccessful due to my limited permissions.

(Optional) Why does the workaround fail?

The workaround fails because my role as a “Reporter” does not grant me the permissions needed to push changes or create new branches.


I will attach two screenshots that showcase:

  1. My current role as “Reporter” in GitLab.

  1. The error message I receive when trying to push my commit.

I need help with

I believe I need to have my role elevated to a higher permission level, possibly to “Developer” that allows branch creation and pushing changes. Can someone assist me with this or guide me on the next steps? My GitLab username is eavelasquez.

Currently, your user already has the necessary permissions.
