How to change default (from bamboo deployments) of "Releases from branches will default to using the branch name suffixed with the build number of the build result"

Would be extremely helpful and just plain logical for the "Release Version" to apply for all branches of a particular build plan.

We release from different release branches (with the JIRA ticket integration e.g. release-XPROJ-1, release-XPROJ-2).

It seems that Bamboo deployments was created with the mindset there would only be a single release branch and I don't believe most folks do things that way...am I wrong?

I would second the request for this functionality. We use both feature *and* release branches in our GIT repository and we regularly need to release from one of the release branches. This defaulting of the release version is a large pain-in-the-neck.

I also require this feature; there doesn't even seem to be a workaround to this. We have Bamboo configured to create releases automatically after successful builds (using triggered deployments), and for builds on a branch we have no choice - you get the Bamboo versioning scheme.

If I were manually creating releases I could ignore the defaults and set the version myself. With automatic releases you don't have this opportunity.

There isn't even a REST API for creating releases.

And I keep wondering, if you're a company that uses Bamboo Deployments, why would you NOT be asking for this feature (not to mention the non-functional Approve/Broken buttons, but that's on another thread)? The current workflow is restrictive and frankly, not conducive for a Continuous Delivery process.

No luck thus far https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-14422.

We have the same problem of course. Is there a plan to fix this?

Same here, this will be a major problem for us and will only build a stronger case to use Jenkins

Same here! It sucks that we have to manually change the release version when deploying a specific branch (besides master)... Why isn't it just "inheriting" the master settings... or even being able to set our own config.
