Default Pull Request Description - include list of commits

Hi all,

I want to use the default PR description to prompt our devs into adding certain information, but the list of commit messages is useful and I don't want to lose that. Is it possible to get both? So I can put my default description with prompts at the top, and then at the bottom retain the list of commit messages that a blank default description generates?

Bump! This is a long requested feature. Can anyone from bitbucket answer this? Thanks

Hello Atlassian? Anyone home?

I would also love to see this. A default template is necessary in a growing team but I really don't like the idea to lose the handy Changelog provided automatically via the commit messages. Maybe it would possible to let us just write something like {{ commit-log }} and on this place the standard list will be included.

Best case would be a simple template engine where I can choose where the list of commits are included but I would be content if there was a checkbox to tell bitbucket to just append the commit list at the end of the description.

In addition it would be nice if the list would update when new commits are pushed to a PR.

Although we can view the commit messages in the commits section, it would be great if we can have it in the description part along with the default description

Either this or format the commit list like this was formatted

Same issue, any ideas are welcome.


I want to have both a custom default PR description and the commit list too!

I am facing the same issue, it would be helpful if we get a revert on this! Thanks in advance
