Changing the branching model setting

Andrew Liew June 30, 2022

In the typical setting of branching model, we have Development branch named "dev" and Production branch "master".

When creating a new branch (feature ) in a dialogue, the field "From branch" is defaulted to "dev". Our work flow requires the team to use "master" branch when creating a new branch (feature). The developers have user problem that they forget to change from "dev" to "master".

I have changed the branching model Development branch from "dev" to "master". So we would have Development and Production branch pointing to "master". With this setting, when creating a new branch (feature) in a dialogue, the field "From branch" is now defaulted to "master". 

Question : If I were to apply the setting, would this affect/changes the existing git operation (pull request, merge, creation, update, etc)?

Hey @Andrew Liew 

G'Day!

I believe this will not affect any existing git operation.

The thing that will change will be on the branch and pull request creation, as it will point to the new development branch you configure.
