Working with branches Edited

I am probably either overcomplicating this, or the controls simply do not apply in my case. I am a sole developer and I basically use BitBucket as an off-site backup and for disaster recovery.

Recently, I decided to create a branch from inside Jira for one of my issues and committed all my code changes using this branch. Then, when I was ready, I merged the branch into my master repository and pushed it to BitBucket with TortoiseGit. See:


When I now go into the issue in Jira, and click on the branch (out of curiosity) it shows this:

Branch.jpgTechnically, I am now done with the branch, although I will keep it online / local for a while before removing it. Yet, Jira is saying to Create pull request. I did not see the need to do that since I had already performed a merge to master locally.

Do I just ignore this action? Is there no way for the system to detect that I have merged the branch now?

Hi @ChuckieAJ ,

I would recommend you just ignore it. Your flow is very simple, but there are situations, when developers need to do more than one pull request.

If it's ok on code base, I would ignore .

Or you can investigate and find dvcs app problem. 

What does DVCS App mean?

So on server release you can clean and reinitialize the request (MR, PR, and commits). 

DVCS app - is app, which used for integration. Jira and dvcs accounts (github, gitlab, bitbucket )
