Delete source branch after merging by DEFAULT


Any way/add-on/workaround to tick the 'Delete source branch after merging' by default on every merge window?

@Daniel Juravski there is no global setting that changes the default state of this checkbox. The state of the checkbox is saved per user/repository. For example, if you choose to delete branch after merge in repository ABC, on next merge the checkbox will be checked.

If you still need to have this checkbox checked by default, here are a few options:

  1. Try JS script - 
  2. Use a script for ScriptRunner for Bitbucket - Link
  3. Automate deletion of merged branches using CI


If you could tell us more about your use-case that would be great - BSERV-9254
