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.

For example,

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?

Answer

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.
