How do I remove people from the Recent list on a pull request?

Josh Brown Aug 29, 2015

When I create a pull request, how do I remove people from the Recent Reviewers list? Someone who used to be on my team is no longer on my team, and I don't really want him to show up in the Recent list any more.

Still no solution for it?

Why the people who don't belong to a project anymore still shows in recent reviewers?

There is still no way to remove people from the suggested "Recent" reviewers list. Any update on this?

Guys, it is a simple request - how can we clear the "recent reviewers" cache?

I want to clear/remove some/all of the recent reviewers.
How can this be done?


Is there any progress since August 2015?

We are in 2019!

This is super annoying - I have in my list a bunch of people who aren't anymore in the company.

Beside that bitbucket is super slow in compare with the others, a bunch of small things which should make our life easier is missing or simply are ignored by Atlassian.

Hi Josh,

Simply click on edit review and then remove reviewers from the Reviewer box.

Thanks, but that doesn't really answer the question. I want to remove the person from the Recent list.

I have the same issue as Josh. It's really annoying as the "Recent" list contains bunch of people who don't even work on the project for a long time. Is there a way to clear that list?

Go to Project settings -> Pull requests ->Default reviewers

This is not a valid solution. The issue refers to clearing out the "recents" list for reviewers.

So, I imagine this also applies to name changes. We have a small team, and my maiden name is still being listed as a suggestion over a year after I married and changed my name!
