I'm not aware of a way of setting a minimum number of reviewers, but you can set a minimum number of approvals, which by virtue of logic is also a minimum number of reviewers:

Thanks Christian. This satisfies my requirement for now :). 


@Christian Glockner's answer is good and allows the minimum # of approvals to be set per-project or per-repository.

Our own plugin (Control Freak) further enhances this idea to allow the minimum to be defined globally.  Control Freak also gives you the ability to not count read-only users towards this threshold (e.g., normally any user can approve any pull-request against a "public" repository - you can use Control Freak to prevent that).

Control-Freak itself is free, but it requires our paid PR-Booster plugin to be co-installed to enable this particular feature.


Here's a screenshot from Control Freak's config page:



Thanks a lot for input. I appreciate.
