Bitbucket PR incorrectly updating jira ticket Edited

This week we've had multiple occasions when a PR was merged but it then updated several unrelated tickets. We haven't changed anything in our Jira configuration for this, and in both cases I can't see any reason why the PR could be linked to the tickets it updated. Has something changed it bitbucket that could affect this?

Hi there,

I have the same problem. 

A PR was created in BitBucket. This PR is now attached to multiple unrelated JIRA tickets. There is no mention of the unrelated tickets in any of the commits pertaining to the PR.

Could do with solving this quite urgently as it's causing a massive headache working out which tickets have actually been merged and which are still under review.
