SourceTree GitFlow won't finish feature

So I think I have the config correct,

when I click on gitflow, it says next action and lists:

'Finish Feature'

when I click it, the 'Feature Name' dropdown is blank though.

My branch is: 'feature-1200' and under feature name it shows '1200' for 1/2 a second and then goes away.

I had the same issue. the following solved it for me.

start the terminal from sourcetree while the affected repository tab is selected / active.

type "git flow config" and press enter.

In my case all prefixes were empty.
If it is that same for you try the following:

  1. Type "git flow init -f" to force a new git flow initialization.
  2. Fill in the proper branch names when prompted:
    1. master
    2. develop
  3. Fill in the branch prefixes when prompted:
    1. feature/
    2. bugfix/
    3. release/
    4. hotfix/
    5. support/
  4. Fill in the Version prefix when prompted if you use it or just press enter.


i hope this will help some of you running into the same issue

It works for me, thank you.

For future reference.

this issue originates from the latest gitflow release that is incorporated in the latest git for windows release. (2.21.0)

so on every new gitflow initialisation the above should be redone

Same issue here

I have the same issue. 

I don' know why, but when it happens for me, I usually just rename the feature or release branch I am on, then try and finish it again. Works every time.

Same issue. Still appears to be in current version.

I am having the same problem with gitFlow. At first, the feature/hotfix name is displayed, but after about one second it disappears completely

I get the same with HGFlow

I am facing the same problem.
