Editing commit log when squashing on Stash

Can the commit message be edited when Stash is squashing multiple commits?


Right now it looks pretty verbose especially if there are a lot of commits being squashed


thank you

Hi @Dragos Ionel ,

Is your question regarding a self-hosted instance of Bitbucket Server (previously known as Stash), and if so, what version of Bitbucket server are you using?

I see that your question has the tag 'bitbucket-cloud', but you mention Stash, so we would need some clarification on what product you are using (and what version, if this is a self-hosted instance) so we can better help you.

Kind regards,

Hi, @Theodora Boudale 

We are using: Atlassian Bitbucket v5.12.1

Thank you

Hi @Dragos Ionel ,

Thank you for your reply!

Editing the commit message when merging a pull request in Bitbucket Server is possible as of version 6.7.0, see the following feature request:

I'm afraid that in earlier versions this is not possible.

If you'd like to use this feature when merging a pull request in Bitbucket, you'll need to upgrade.

Another option would be to squash the commits on client side. You can check in the following question Michael Heemskerk's answer:

He gives detailed instructions on how you can do the squash locally, in a way that Bitbucket Server will also recognize that your pull request is merged.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know!

Kind regards,

Thank you, @Theodora Boudale! All is clear.

You are very welcome, glad to have helped! Please feel free to reach out if you ever need anything else.

Have a nice day!
