Creating a template for pull request

Is there a way to create a pull request template?

It's easy with Github as mentioned here:


Wondering if similar thing works for BitBucket too?

I'm sorry but this is not a pull request template, this is a fixed text without parameters.

I don't suppose there is a way to do this for entire projects, or (even better), the entire instance for our org?  The thought of going through and setting this manually for every single repo in even a single project makes me want to run, screaming, into traffic.  

Also, is there a syntax guide and/or variable list anywhere?  The preview and suggested markups all do not work.

Did you find any solution?
