Commit text links gets deleted everytime I restart Sourcetree

I am using Sourcetree - Commit text links to link my git commits to Jira. It's working fine.
But when I restart Sourcetree the settings are gone.

Can someone help me with this problem, or has anyone had the same issue?

I have this problem too. These settings get written to the file: 
<repository folder>/.git/sourcetreeconfig.json 

I saw that these values were getting cleared whenever Sourcetree reloads the repository, either during a restart of Sourcetree or if you just close the repo and re-open it.

My attempt at a workaround only solved half the problem. I was able to make it persist across closing and reloading the repository by going to Repository Settings / Advanced and unchecking "Use global user settings" in the User information groupbox. Unfortunately, it still clears it when you reload after restarting Sourcetree. Not sure what else might be triggering it to override the settings in that case.
