      Atlassian status as of Mar 2022

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks to everyone for voting and commenting on this suggestion. Your input in the comments helps us understand how this affects you and what you're hoping to accomplish with Bitbucket Data Center.

      We spend a significant amount of time determining our product investments in Bitbucket Data Center. Unfortunately, we are not planning to address this suggestion in the next 12 months.

      In the last year, we have resolved many of the highly voted suggestions like Reviewer groups, Pull request description templates, capability to enable/disable source branch deletion on merging pull requests and our upcoming roadmap includes a number of other top voted suggestions, including repository archiving. Please check out our public roadmap for more details on the coming soon and future items.

      I understand that this may be disappointing, but it’s important for us to be open, honest, and transparent with our customers. Product feedback is collected from many different sources and is evaluated when planning the product roadmap. You can learn more about our process here.

      Original suggestion

      If Stash could detect/remember the base branch from which a feature branch is created, it could automatically pre-select it as the destination during pull request creation.

      — Original suggestion —
      This would be useful for when you need to merge pull requests for release branches e.g., fix/1.x/bugfix into release/1.x. When a pull request is created, the correct release branch could be selected automatically. This will be a pleasant experience and reduce errors caused by having the default branch selected by default for the destination.
