What links a JIRA issue to Bitbucket commits/PRs

Hello,

We are using the server versions of both JIRA and Bitbucket. When I view JIRA project releases I can view issues belonging to that release. The Development column shows commits and the merge status of pull requestsl linking to those tickets. 

I see commits linked from having the JIRA issue ID in the commit message. What else creates this link? Branches with a JIRA issue ID in the name? Anything else?

Thanks!

JIRA issues are linked when you mention the JIRA key in Bitbucket, either in the branch name, as part of the description or comment in a pull request or as part of the commit comment (as you have seen). 

Here is some more information about the integration, https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/jira-integration-776639874.html

Perfect. Thank you!

Do user forks not apply?

I committed to a user repo under my account, which displayed the commit fine in the Development area in the JIRA issue.

When I attempted the same in a forked repo under my account, the commit did not display in the JIRA issue.

I also tested with a fork that is under a project, not a user account, and that displays fine.

Thanks.
