Bitbucket checkout no longer showing copy and paste command

For the last few weeks the bitbucket checkout no longer has a command you can copy and paste to checkout a particular branch.

Hi, @Matthew Fraser! Welcome to the community! 

Recently, this command has been removed from our UI due to vulnerability reasons. We understand that this may impact the workflow of some developers, so we have already created a feature request to add the git checkout command to the UI again as you can check here: 

The first comment in that issue is from one of our developers and gives more details on this.

I would suggest that you add your vote there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features and you are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link), this way you will receive updates about this request. 

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request. 

Kind regards,
