How can i prevent a user to include approvers in a Pull Request

In our workflow some user are added as default approvers when a Pull Request is openned.

As mentioned in the STASH docs that any user with write permition can approve a PR. I want to prevent the user to add any approver to the PR. Is that possible?

I'm not sure there's a way to prevent a user from adding reviewers to a Pull Request, but you can restrict who can "merge" the Pull Request using branch permissions - only users with write permission on that branch can merge.  Note that "merging" a Pull Request is fundamentally different than "approving" a Pull Request ("approving" just indicates a thumbs-up without any real impact)

Users with repository READ permissions can be added as reviewers. Are you requesting to block adding any reviewer to a Pull Request or only selected users? Do these selected users need to see the repository?

I'm using a addon (workzone) that already include the reviewer in the PR and we use that in our workflow. If the user include any other repository user to the PR it can approve and the merge gets automaticly done (addon stuff). To keep using this addon, and doing merge automaticly, no other reviewer can participate the PR other then those added by the addon.
