Hi @asi_lh,

There is no way to directly rename a branch in a remote repository. What the push command is doing is deleting the old branch and creating a new one, so for the remote repo, this is a new, different branch.

That being said, we could offer the option to change the source branch in the pull request, which is something that doesn't work at the moment.

We have a bug report in our issue tracker about this that you can vote for and add yourself as a watcher if you'd like to get notified on updates:

In the meantime, the way to work around this would be by declining this PR and creating a new one with the new branch as a source.

Kind regards,
