how to customize branch name when creating from JIRA into bitbucket?

Hello there,

So I have a few questions

  1. how to customize default format of branch name creation from JIRA
    1. it creates in format JIRAID-#-description (e.g., WEB-3-nginx_server_modA). I would like to change this to something else. How can I do this?

2. Customize other components on the "Create Branch" page

  • I want "Branch type" to default to Custom
  • I want "Branch from" to default to master


Is there any way this can be done?

Appreciate any help.

Thank you


UPDATE: I found the answer to #2 under repo settings. So only looking for answer to #1

I am looking for same as well. The branch name of Bit Bucket when created from JIRA should be just issue id in our case. 

Do anyone know how to customize this?
