we are using git in Team Foundation Service, and we are trying to find a way to delete a remote branch by running the following command.

git push origin --delete TheBranchName

The remote server keeps rejecting with the following error:

 ! [remote rejected] TheBranchName (TF401026: The ForcePush permission is required to perform this action.) error: failed to push some refs to 'https://xxx.visualstudio.com/DefaultCollection/_git/Xxxxxx'

You can access security options at the repository using this way:

  • Code->Explorer, then you have to Select a repository from the Explorer 
  • Now, in the repository details, click on the name of the repository 
  • Then Select "Manage repositories... menu"
  • Now, you should be able to configure the rights of every contributor groups & individual users and the branches. "Rewrite" and Destroy History (allow for force push)
