How to get the Delete Branch checkbox to stay checked?

Robert Gelb October 18, 2022

When I am creating a PR, there is a `Delete Checkbox` checkbox.  I've read that once you check it, it will remain checked for the next PR.  It does not.

How do i get this checkbox to stay checked?  I always want to delete the branch once PR has been merged.

Hello @Robert Gelb ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

I'm afraid we currently don't have the functionality to set a default (enabled or disabled) to the checkbox "Delete source branch" when creating a Pull Request.

The good news is that we already have a feature request to implement this, which is being tracked in the ticket below : 

I would suggest you to add your vote there, since this helps both developers and product managers to understand the interest. Also, make sure you add yourself as a watcher in case you want to receive first-hand updates from that ticket. Please note that all features are implemented with this policy in mind.

Thank you, @Robert Gelb !

Kind regards,

Patrik S
