Is it possible to show the fork parent on a forked overview page?

When comparing with GitHub we see the fork parent link on the overview page. I'm missing this link in the forked repo on Bitbucket!

I know there is a link in the "Fork syncing" settings page, but I think it would be nice to see it more clearly.

Hello @Jörg Schömer

Thanks for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

In Bitbucket Cloud, it is possible to create a fork of the repository. You may check the below reference:

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Karthick S

Hi Karthick,

I know how to create a fork.

what I like to have is a link to the forked repo (fork parent), the source of the fork in the overview page of the fork repo.

when I‘ve created a PR from a branch in my fork repo and want to delete the branch I’ll get an error like: there is a PR including your branch. The PR is located in the fork parent repo, so I’ve to find the fork parent repo to delete the PR and then go back to the fork to delete the branch.

otherwise a link could be rendered in the error message pointing to the PR, this would also be very helpful!

It’s not to hard to render a link to the source within the overview. As I said, GitHub does it and it is really helpful.

kind regards

FWIW this link exists on Bitbucket Cloud. Sorry I don't know about server.

Is it configurable?
