Creating branch from Jira with custom pattern?


we are using Stash linked with JIRA since a couple of days. Every time when we create a branch (link "Create branch" in Jira) a branch is created with the name "feature/issue key + issue description". What we want is only the issue key as branch name e.g. feature/JRA-4355

Is it possible to customize this pattern in a Stash configuration file?

Thank you!

Hi Mathias,

That's how it is supposed to be by default.

This is created as a suggestion. As documented, you can always edit that.

Hi Thiago, yes, that's right. I can edit this value. But I want to have it as Default without issue description (e .g. to avoid that a developer forget to remove the desciption). Thanks!

I had the same question - it would be good to be able to change the default branch-naming suggestion, because if you use a different branch naming policy, developers will have to manually change the suggestion each time.
