See all 5 Pull request merge strategies in Bitbucket Cloud

According to, there are 5 different merge strategy options available for merging pull requests, however I can only see 2 of them from my Bitbucket Cloud account:
-Merge commit --no-ff
-Squash --squash

Does Bitbucket Cloud only support 2 out of 5 supported strategies in Bitbucket Server 4.9 or am I missing something?

Thank you beforehand,

Hi Victor,

You're correct. Sorry for the confusion. There are variances in the feature set offered by the Cloud and Server versions of Bitbucket, and in this case Server is slightly ahead of Cloud in terms of functionality. For now, Bitbucket Cloud currently supports only a subset of the merge strategies available in Bitbucket Server. 



Any update on this suggestions ?

There is a 4 years old ticket about this issues !!!

Any updates on this, I really want the rebase + merge --no-ff option available.

Any updates on when this will be available on BitBucket Cloud? We also use the "rebase + merge --no-ff" option to merge feature branches.
