Checkout Button not showing for file links

We have set up our repositories with file links (file://...) instead of URLs as suggested by Atlassian for performance reasons.

Can I have a global setting with file link and checkout button for each repository without specifying the URL for each repository seperately?

On the SCM Details tab, either select, or clear, the Show Checkout URL checkbox:
