How to edit commit message in Sourcetree to attach a Jira issue

How to edit commit message in Sourcetree to attach a Jira issue to avoid "messages that are missing valid issue keys" ???


2 answers

In Sourcetree, you can select the commit for which the message needs to be modified and then choose "Interactive Rebase.." from the Repository menu.

Use "Edit Message" during the rebase to include the JIRA key and click "Ok" to save the change.

Many thanks, Jobin, it resolve the issue.


My remark was more about editing commit messages in general.


Not really intuitive I'd say here. Why can't we do this easier ? it seems to me that this an operation that everyone has been asking for years. (I even edited this message!)

Hi @Eugene Pavlovs,

You are able to enter whatever you'd like in the commit message editor in Sourcetree, even Markdown on macOS. There is no automated way to insert a ticket's reference into it from Sourcetree currently.

Right now it's more of a workflow problem. The way we do it on Sourcetree is to manually copy and paste the title as the first line of the commit message. Which then becomes the PR title and then the merge message in Bitbucket Cloud. 

Please vote and comment on an existing ticket or file a new one via our public trackers (Mac, Windows) for us to review and prioritize accordingly.
