"View" only permissions for repository (view without being able to clone) (BB-14756)

Issue #11965 wontfix

very frequently, we use our repository to get code review comments from people... or when we are trying to hire consultants and they ask to see the code to get an idea of the effort.

though I understand if someone can see the code, then the secret's out... but we want to make it hard for them to clone the repo and use it.

That is why it would be awesome to have "View only" permissions for a repository.. in which a user can browse the code, but the "raw" functionality as well as "clone" would be prevented.

    Hi Sandeep,

    Thank you for this suggestion and use case. At this time, I don't think this is a broad enough use-case to turn into an option for all users. We may reconsider in future, however.
