Long titles get chopped off silently when creating new branch (BB-11778)

Issue #10787 wontfix
Michael B created an issue

From a JIRA issue, I can click the link "Create Branch". I am taken to something like this: https://bitbucket.org/branch/create?issueKey=someKey&issueType=Improvement&issueSummary=someTitle

If someTitle is too long, it gets chopped off. I suppose that is fine if git can't handle such a long title, but perhaps trimming silently is a bad idea.

Personally, I think we should be allowed the option to just have it ignore issueSummary altogether. Whenever I use this tool, I have to remember to check the branch name it says it will create so I can make sure it makes sense.

Also, the branch name field is short. Could we have that widened?

    Thanks for the request. However, we do truncate the branch name intentionally, and the branch name is displayed in the UI.
