How to show git (GitHub) branch for commit

This could actually be useful to see if an issue was committed to master or just a feature / PR branch.

Hi @Cosmin Lehene,

I'm pretty sure the only way that Jira is intelligent enough to know the branch is if the name of the branch contains the Jira issue key (e.g. JIRA-123).

Now, and issue you will run into historically (which we have also encountered and decided to just live with it) depends on how you manage your git branches.  We will typically delete branches when code is merged from the feature branch to the 'develop' branch.  While we using the Jira issue key for feature branch names and branches are displayed while the project is active, branches will "disappear" the moment code is merged because we are deleting the git branches to keep the repositories clean.

I hope that helps answer your question.
