Can I set a group a as default reviewer for a pull request?

Each team in our company has multiple repositories and the option to specify a list of default reviewers for each repository is not very handy and causes a lot of work if we get a new team member or if we lose one.

So is it possible to set a group as default reviewer for a pull request?

You can do this with ScriptRunner for Bitbucket Server and easily apply it to multiple repositories out of the box.

Please also see the documentation here on how to add groups as default reviewers, its really simple to achieve what you want. You can also optionally add these reviewers based on a condition, for example changed files in a pull request contains CSS or JavaScript changes:


There is also an option to add mandatory reviewers or groups to a pull request which can not be removed by the user if you want to enforce such reviewers.

Let me know if you need any further details regarding the product.

Hope this helps,



There is also the workzone add-on which lets you add default reviewers and groups by branch or branch-pattern via an intuitive UI. Mandatory reviewers are also supported. 

The repository reviewer configuration can be used to control the pull request merge process as well - if that's part of your workflow.

Let me know if you have any questions...
