A better feature branch naming in Intellij IDEA

Intellij Idea has a very nice feature: you can customize feature branch name. When create a new task, the Intellij IDEA will help you create a new (git) branch. The default name of the branch is the task number, e.g. FOO-1 for Jira, or #1 for gitlab. However, we can make the branch name better by adding the task summary to it. It will be like FOO-1-add-a-new-feature. To configure it, goes to Preferences->Tools->Task and change the Feature branch name format to {id}-{summary}
