Enable gitflow for Bitbucket

Hi,

How do i enable Bitbucket repos to follow gitflow? Is there an equivalent of "git flow init" on the Bitbucket GUI?

Any help in the right direction appreciated.

Regards,

I'm not sure what you want to accomplish by saying "Enable Gitflow". As per my understanding, Gitflow is a workflow that your team can follow as your SCM guideline. It's not something configurable, it's something you and your developers do through out your development. Atlassian have created a very good documentation about this on the link below.

Some part of this may need some add-ons or tweaking branch permissions and that's it. I think that's the "Enable" part you are talking about here.

Thanks Gabrielle. Wanted to confirm that I'm not missing anything obvious as I'm new to Bitbucket.....but have used Gitflow on git repo on Linux without any layer like Bitbucket on top. 

No problem Innocent Spirit! smile
