      Description

      As a JIRA user that also is an JIRA-integrated SCM user of some sort (Bitbucket in my example), I click the Create Branch link and get put into Bitbucket with an auto-created banch name of:

      WEB-950-issue-with-paidfree-reporting-in

      ...consisting of the Issue Key + a length-limited "Train-Case" part of the Summary, we would like the flexibility to have it just be:

      WEB-950

      It would be helpful to have a limited "printf" format model where key bits of the issue were available for customization into the branch name. In our case, we just want the Issue Key.

      Prototype: Where these (and other) format strings are possible with built-in definitions:

      #!bash
      %s = Summary
      %k = Issue Key
      %K = Issue Key All Caps
      %f = Fix Version
      %a = Assignee
      

      ...etc. then the JIRA Administrator would be able to automate the branch name format in a way that makes the Create Branch link more usable and prevents some naming errors.
