How to get sourcetree to ignore branches

So I am finished using the branch "automationtests" for now. I don't want to delete the branch on the git repo. How do I get tell SoureTree that I don't want it to be in its push list anymore?

The default branch pushing mode is 'Matching' which means if there's a branch named the same thing on the remote, it will be checked by default.

You can change this in Preferences > Git > Push branches; the meanings are the same as the gitconfig option:

  1. matching (default) - push all branches which have a matching branch name on the selected remote
  2. current - push the current branch to a branch of the same name on the remote
  3. upstream - push the current branch to its tracking branch on the remote
  4. nothing - push nothing by default

Thanks Steve

Another option is to delete the branch of course (on either end), but I was assuming you didn't want to do that.
