Why my branch is not under "feature"?


I have a project on a "Develop" branch.

When using "Git-flow" in the past, I got a new branch called "feature" and under feature the name of the branch I've created.

Lately when on "develop" (develop is checked out), and I choose "git-flow" the options show:

Finish feature

Other options


I choose other options and create a new branch. The newly created branch is not under "feature" but in the same hierarchy as the "develop" branch.


My other team mate when she check out develop and click Git-flow she has options:

Create new feature


and when she creates a new branch it is under "feature"


All my repositories immediately suggest I "finish feature" when "git-flow" on develop...


How can I fix that?

It sounds like your git-flow config might be invalid. Could you post the contents of your 'config' file under "YOUR_REPO/.git"? It should look something like this:

[gitflow "branch"]
master = master
develop = develop

[gitflow "prefix"]
feature = feature/
release = release/
hotfix = hotfix/
support = support/
versiontag =



It looks like that:

Should I assign the string manually?
