How do I disable "also approved" emails on Bitbucket

I can't find a way to disable the annoying emails from Bitbucket regarding "Bob also approved this pull request" without just entirely disabling emails.

Hi Mitchell! Disabling certain notifications is not possible, what you can do is to "unwatch" the pull request to stop receiving email notifications, this is explained at  Pull request now with reviewers and smarter notifications. However, note that you'll still receive them if you've been added as a reviewer. 

For more info you can read Manage email notifications and Notifications.

If you’d like, you can also submit a Feature request at so other users can vote for it if they also like it :)



Hey Ana,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I still want to remain subscribed to changes to the PR and know when it merges, just don't care about additional approvals.

I'll definitely submit a feature request but I can't see Bitbucket Cloud as a project in that Jira. Should I submit it under Bitbucket server?
