    Hello, all the "sync now" does is merge another branch into yours. So, while you are on your feature branch, you can simply run git merge master or git merge origin/master to "sync" your branch with your copy of master.

    On a side note, other support channels would probably be a better place for this, as this is not a bug report against Bitbucket.

    The issue could be considered as a small bug in UI - signalling the user what is the purpose or the end effect of that action.

    Your explanation could be a perfect hint, or maybe the action could be renamed from "250+ commits behind testing. Sync now. " to "250+ commits behind testing. Merge testing into your branch."?

    In some workflows that would be a very dangerous operation, and should be (if it's not - I won't dare to try it ;-) be guarded by some "are you really sure?" question.
