From issues in JIRA, we can't create a branch from anything other than the master branch.

Using Jira with Bitbucket. We have a branch for the current sprint. Using the JIRA interface, we create a branch for an issue selecting the current sprint as the "from" branch, but it creates it from master instead. It then also doesn't show in the "development" area of the issue. 

How do we work around this?

After I click create branch in Jira, I choose my development branch to create a branch from. Redirected to the brach and its created from the master branch...
