Is there a way to change the branch the PR is pointed to automatically


So right now, all our PR's point to our dev branch automatically.test.png

However we have major branches for stories and branch off those story branches when doing subtasks. 

dev branch  -> story branch  -> subtask branch


Is there a way to automatically point PR's to the branch the current one is branched off of and not dev? 

Thank you!

Hi, @Meagan Hiatt, welcome to the community! 

As @Vishwas said, currently, the destination branch is always the branch that is configured as the Development branch under the branching model. In order to change that, you can access Repository settings > Branching model > under Development branch, you can select the main branch or a specific branch > click Save to apply the changes.

However, we have this feature request asking for this functionality as you can check on the link below:

I would suggest that you add your vote there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. 

You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request. 

Kind regards, 

Thank you! And I will add my vote to that feature request.

Hey @Meagan Hiatt 

Welcome to Atlassian Community !!

My guess this is behaves because in "Repository Settings" --> "Branching model" the development branch is set to "develop" branch hence. And in the settings i checked there isn't a option to set automatic.




Yea that's what I figured. Thanks!
