How to display a git (stash) branch on the jira ticket development panel

Say I have a story JIRA-123, for it I create a branch using the Create Branch link, entering JIRA-123-feature, which shows up on branch on JIRA-123 development panel.

Now I have a bug against my feature, JIRA-456, to which I'm going to use branch JIRA-123-feature to resolve it. I can't use Create Branch on JIRA-456, since JIRA-123-feature already exists (created using JIRA-123).

My question is: how can I make JIRA-123-feature be displayed in branch on JIRA-456 development panel?

I tried git commit -m "JIRA-456"; git push origin JIRA-123-feature but this only makes the commit show up in commits on the development panel: JIRA-123-feature is not displayed in branch

The branch shows up only when the branch name has the key in it.

You can probably try naming the branch with 2 issue keys but I have never tried it. Not sure if it will work or not.

Thanks Jobin, but how can I name the branch with 2 (or more) issue keys, when I don't know if there will ever be any second or more issues, and which jira keys they will have. And renaming the branch afterwards is not going to fly with development...
