How come I do not get the option to set a branch type when using the "Create Branch" feature?

According to the *.gif in the Streamlining your development with JIRA page, I should be seeing the option to select a type of branch when creating a new branch for a feature. 

However, I do not get this option or any of these features using BitBucket: is this something specific to Stash? I also do not see created branches after they have been created: do they require the issue key in the branch name?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

This widget could not be displayed.

At this time, that feature is exclusive to Stash.

That explains the mismatch, thanks.

+1 for having this on BitBucket also. Is there a Jira ticket for this to vote on?

(Damm can't edit!). The reason is for CI servers to watch branches - eg. "bugs/*", "features/*".
