The issue was the branch's name: Sourcetree didn´t include the word "feature/ or hotfix/" when I initialized Git flow. I had to init on cmd with git flow init -f again.



I got same issue.

As far as I can check, root cause seems to be SourceTree "Git flow init" button fails setting gitflow prefixes.

My Git config was "empty":

[gitflow "prefix"]
feature =
bugfix =
release =
hotfix =


Replacing with usual default setting (here after) fixed this issue at my end

[gitflow "prefix"]
feature = feature/
bugfix = bugfix/
release = release/
hotfix = hotfix/


Hope this can help,

this fix my error..thanks so much.!

Hello! This might be an issue on our end but as a work-around just click the "Terminal" button and run the following command:

git flow hotfix finish 1527-acceso-denegado


Before doing that, could you run the command that will list the possible hotfix names for gitflow and reply with the results?

git flow hotfix list

I have the same problem

$ git flow feature list
Fatal: Prefix parameter missing.
No feature branches exist.

You can start a new feature branch:

git flow feature start <name> [<base>]



I'm having the same user as the reporter, at the beginning the hotfix is listed but after some seconds it disappears.

I'm using a new brand computer and I cloned my git from bitbucket, in my other PC it works ok.

I'm using version 3.3.6


I already did this: git flow init -f


And this:

Replacing with usual default setting (here after) fixed this issue at my end

[gitflow "prefix"]
feature = feature/
bugfix = bugfix/
release = release/
hotfix = hotfix/
