How can I link branches with issues in BitBucket?
I am using a BitBucket private repo for hosted source-control. I would like to use the issue tracker to manage and assign issues amoungst the team.
With JIRA, the names of branches and issues are linked.
ISSUE-123 would automatically recognise branch
bugfix/ISSUE-123 as related, and display it in GUI.
Does the built-in issue tracker for BitBucket support this functionality? If so, how should I name my branches so that they are linked?

There is a way to link them, not exactly as it works in Jira but it is useful.
You can reference issues, pull requests, users, changesets in commits, comments or descriptions using the following syntax:
issue #number -> issue #88 pull request #number -> pull request #1541 @accountname or @emailaddress -> @tutorials HEX_CHARS -> 9cc27f2
See here for more details.
Response from BitBucket:
Unfortunately, the feature to link branches with issues to branches is
not available on the Bitbucket’s built in issue tracker.
You can go ahead and file a feature request for this on our public
tracker though: https://bitbucket.org/site/master/issues
Let us know if you face further issues.
