= branch ... not found
With this error message Gerrit rejects to push a commit for code
review if the specified target branch does not exist.
To push a change for code review the commit has to be pushed to the
project's magical `refs/for/'branch'` ref (for details have a look at
link:user-upload.html#push_create[Create Changes]).
If you specify a non-existing branch in the `refs/for/'branch'` ref
the push fails with the error message 'branch ... not found'.
To fix this problem verify
* that the branch name in the push specification is typed correctly
(case sensitive) and
* that the branch really exists for this project (in the Gerrit Web UI
go to 'Projects' > 'List' and browse your project, then click on
'Branches' to see all existing branches).
If it was your intention to create a new branch you can either
* bypass code review on push as explained link:user-upload.html#bypass_review[here] or
* create the new branch in the Gerrit Web UI before pushing (go to
'Projects' > 'List' and browse your project, in the 'Branches'
tab you can then create a new branch).
Please note that you need to be granted the
link:access-control.html#category_create['Create reference'] access to create new branches.
