I would like a branch to be deleted automatically from git after its contents have been merged with the main branch, but it's not.
I'm using bitbucket in the cloud, on a repository where I have admin rights. I created a branch, did a commit, opened a pull request which I myself merged, all using the web interface.
At creation of the pull request I tick the "Delete X after the pull request is merged", and at merge I tick "Close branch after commit". The merge goes fine with no errors but the branch remains in git (not in the browser list though).
Any idea what am I missing?
Thanks in advance
When you say "remains in git" - do you mean in your local repository on your workstation?
If so - that would be normal, the remote (Bitbucket) will not make any changes on your and other users workstation.
You and others will have to 'clean up' local branches. I found this article very helpful.
Hope that helps,
