In our company we use a simplified version of gitflow in GitLab. This has served us very well in the last years, and this is what we usually do:
- Create an issue
- From the issue, hit the
create merge request and branchbutton
- Prefix the branch name with
If the issue is #35 and named
My New Feature, this would result immediately in:
- The creation of a branch called
- The creation of a MR named
Resolve "My New Feature"
- The MR having
closes #35in the description
However, since a few days, the following happens after step 3:
- I end up on the MR creation screen, with nothing in the description (I have to type in
closes #35myself), then click
create merge request again
- The MR is named
Draft: Feature/35 my new feature
Is this now configurable? When did this change? Any release note / change log I can read on this?
I would really miss the old behaviour, especially the automatic description to close the issue.
