Adding reviewers to pull requests via REST API Edited

Hola!
I've discovered API documentation, but still suffer with finding the way to add or delete reviewers from existing pull request. As I've understood, the endpoint I need is PUT /2.0/repositories/{username}/{repo_slug}/pullrequests/{pull_request_id} , 
but I am getting 500 errors like "This QueryDict instance is immutable" or 400 with

"title": [
"This field is required."
]

Could someone please provide CURL snippet or even better POSTMAN one?

Hi!

You are using the correct endpoint to update reviewers. Title is required, so make sure you send that along and also if you do use curl, make sure to send the content type of json. 

I will gladly provide you the curl command that you need to be able to add and/or delete reviewers from an existing PR using our API. 

Steps:

You will need the uuid for the user(s), which you can get by calling this endpoint.

1. Save your request payload to a file:

printf '{ "title": "README.md edited online with Bitbucket", "reviewers": [{ "uuid": "{replace_me_with_an_actual_uuid}"}]}' > payload

2. Call the endpoint to update your reviewers:

curl -X PUT -u 'username:password' https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/{owner}/{repo_slug}/pullrequests/{pullrequest_id} -d @payload --header "Content-Type: application/json" -v

You were likely getting the immutable error due to missing the content type.

Let us know if you have any further difficulty!

It's exactly what I need, thanx!

FYI I found that if you have the Bitbucket username, you can also pass it {"username": "<username>"} directly without having to go lookup the UUID first

Like Alex Xie likes this

@Steve Muskiewicz Tried this: Does not work. Gives me a Malformed reviewers list. 

Is there something wrong with syntax ? 

"reviewers": [
{
"username":"user1"
}

]

 I want to add the repository's default reviews as reviews. What should I do in this case ?
