JIRA alternative branch naming to issue

Well, when we creating a JIRA project we must provide "project code". Imagine that we create project with name "Google" and project code is "GOOG".

Now we create some issue with id "GOOG-4" and developer need to create git branch with name "GOOG-4-some-feature" to match branch with issue.

So, my question is about how to give branch name with different name, for example "feature-4" or "hotfix-4" to make JIRA issue id "GOOG-4" match with such git branch name?

Thanks!

You can't. You need to have the issue key in the branch name for the branch to be visible in JIRA.

Maybe you can do hotfix/GOOG-4 and feature/GOOG-4 but the key has to be there I'm afraid!
