BitBucket merge-squash flooded with intermediate messages

Taw Moto July 22, 2020

My scenario is this:

I have a `feature/x` branch where I commited 20-30 times, then I want to `merge squash` on master.

I am doing this using the BitBucket web interface, but it seems that all 20-30 commit messages are preserved, which is bad.  I don't really need all the intermediate commit messages, just the main commit message that I write in the "merge" dialog..

We should have the possibility to "keep/remove intermediate messages" or smth, via a checkbox.

When `git merge squash` in cmdline, this does not happen, it happens only in Bitbucket.

Is there a workaround for this?

It looks like you can set "commit summaries" to 0. This should pop up a a window that asks you to provide a custom commit message 🙂

See and the "Commit summaries" section of

I haven't had a chance to try this yet myself, but it looks hopeful! 🙂

No where to change commit summaries

@简涛 It's working for us 🙂  After clicking "Merge", there are two text fields, under the label "Commit message", that can be edited.
