What is best practice to name a branch of epic

I am working on a project, where i used to work many users stories of a epic, so we follow below process for release the feature.


1. clone development branch

2. Create epic branch from development. For e.g., epic/SLx-x

3. Create feature branch from epic branch. For e.g, feature/SLx-x

4. Merge feature branch into epic branch

5. Merge epic branch into development

6. Merge development into staging

7. So on to production

My question is what is best practice name a epic branch? is epic/SLx-x is correct naming style?

we're using a similar process and naming convention. Using epic/[issue key number] and feature/[issue key number] (eg. epic/SWAN-123, feature/SWAN-124) should do it :)

You also can always refer back to the Jira issue quickly which turned to be useful more than once during testing, debugging and automation.
