Bitbucket not showing the branches online

Hi, following the Atlassian tutorial


after I create a local branch I can never see it in the online branches, when I click on master or branches all I ever see is the main branch. I can checkout my branch locally I the command line, its just never in the remote repo online.

I found this which helped enormously:


From the CLI, within your local repository directory

  1. Create a branch using the Git branch command. git branch <branch name>
  2. List the branches for this repository. You’ll see the default branch master, and the new branch you created. git branch
  3. Check out the branch.git checkout <branch name>

  4. Push the new branch to Bitbucket. git push --set-upstream origin <branch name>
