Does Bitbucket automatically has default reviewers for a branch?

I am working on a pull-request from command-line and searching if Bitbucket automatically has default reviewers for a branch. I don't want to manually add reviewers in the code and then change it for every branch in different repositories, rather when a pull request is created, the default reviewers of that branch (according to Bitbucket) should be added.

Hi Sam,

You may use Workzone (stash plugin/add-on) to define default reviewers.

We added the ability to have default reviewers per branch in Bitbucket Server 4.8: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/add-default-reviewers-to-pull-requests-834221295.html

Is this ever going to be possible in Bitbucket Cloud?

Hi @Wesley Sonner, adding default reviewers per branch is not possible at the moment in Bitbucket Cloud, but I found a couple of Feature requests that might interest you:

- https://bitbucket.org/site/master/issues/12565/default-reviewers-for-a-branch-creating

- https://bitbucket.org/site/master/issues/15330/set-different-reviewer-groups-for-a-repo

You can vote for them to increase their popularity and add a comment if you'd like. 

Best regards,

Ana
