      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 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.

      Meantime, we recommend having a look at Create Branch Wizard for Bitbucket from Atlassian Marketplace.

      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 description

      What is needed is an option to customise how branch names are set by default, originally their are composed by the issue key and summary of the issue in JIRA, although what we want is to customise it to set only the issue key without any summary or additional data.

      As an example:

      How it is now: branch name: JSP-3745-research-for-issues-on-jira
      How we want: JSP-3745

      We are able to change the branch name when creating it, although we want a global configuration that we won't have to change it every time.
