Best place to keep code review checklist in Bitbucket?

Hi All!

Our developers use a code review checklist that helps them make sure they remember the most crucial things to verify on submitted pull requests. Such a checklist is currently kept separately on Confluence. They would like to move it to Bitbucket so that it's on sight when they perform a code review.

Are there any BB tools or 3rd party apps that could help with this? I know BitBucket has got pull request tasks, but it seems they need to be manually added with each new pull request. The best I've come up with so far is to add those code review points as the default pull request description.

Wonder if anyone has any better ideas.

Hi @Sebastian Brudziński ,

The Bitbucket Cloud team is dogfooding a feature called Default Pull Request Tasks right now.

With it, you will be able to specify a list of tasks to include on every pull request.

You can vote for and follow along the public issue here:

Thanks, @Tyler T - This is great news! I've already voted and am looking forward to this feature very much.

Like Tyler T likes this

For more sophisticated check lists, we offer Pull Request Checklist Buddy.

It allows to give rules on when a certain task is appropriate for a pull request, like:

When merging to 'develop', then Task A, Task B, Task C apply.
When merging to 'release', then Release Task A, Task B, Task C apply.
When the /src/security/* is accected, then Security Review Task A, B, C, D apply.

Any plans for a cloud version?

Not yet, but we are gathering interest for Checklist Buddy for Bitbucket Cloud. Can you send us a short summary about the exact requirements your developers have to ?
We can then better judge about feasibility etc., as the Bitbucket Cloud API is quite limited.

Btw. Code Owners, our other app for Bitbucket, is now available for Bitbucket Cloud.
