Branch name restrictions - auto naming replacement

Ben Tamir I'm New Here May 31, 2021


We want to enforce and restrict some branch names ruling. Such as no '.' (dot) in the branch name except release/ prefix.
So I know how to create such restriction with Bitbucket repo settings, BUT when I open a branch thru Jira, Bitbucket suggest the correct naming based on Jira's title. On the title it's allowed to use any characters. but can Bitbucket somehow replace the suggested name according to the above rule?

i.e Jira title is:  'Defect - Release 1.0 - Something is not working'
Bitbucket suggested branch name: 'bugfix/Defect---release-1.0---Something-is-not-working'.
Desirable branch name: 'bugfix/Defect---release-1-0---Something-is-not-working'.

Or in other words, as bitbucket replaces spaces to '-' , can it also replace other characters?
