A proper merge to do within a PR?

How to do TRUE merge as part of a PR (meaning a new merge commit that has 2 - or more parents). Not a FF (that makes it look like work was done "on" the target branch); not a Squash (that eliminates the history)....

Hello @David V_ Corbin ,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community.

When you click the "Merge" button in a pull request, a new panel will be displayed with an option to choose which merge strategy you'd like to use :

The currently available option are Merge commit, squad, or Fast forward. Accordingly to your description, the option that would create a new commit with two parents would be Merge commit.

You can also set the default merge strategy in a given repository by going to Repository Settings > Merge Strategies.

Hope that helps! Let me know in case you have any questions.

Thank you, @David V_ Corbin .

Kind regards,

Patrik S

Hello David,

to override the merge-commit message Bitbucket creates you can trigger a PR merge via the Bitbucket cloud rest api and define the merge message via the 'message' request parameter.

Hope that helps
