How do I require branches to originate from Jira cloud.

I need to restrict branching to originate from Jira cloud. Meaning, I wish to restrict users from creating new branches without doing so through Jira.

Is there a way to do this?

Hi, @Bill Rachilla

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Just to confirm that I understand your request correctly: you would like that it was not possible to create branches directly in the Bitbucket repository, only through Jira, is that correct?

If that’s the case, just to make sure we are on the same page, currently, when we create a branch from Jira, we are redirected to Bitbucket to create the new branch:

So, at this time, it is not possible to restrict branch creation only through Jira. What exists is a feature to require issue keys in commit messages (you can enable this by accessing Repository settings > Links), but I believe this is not what you need.

In this case, I would like to ask you for more details about your business case to further understand why this feature would be important to your team. With this information, I can raise a feature request to our dev team.

Thank you. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
