How to fill-in multiple reviewer names on PR at once

In our group, while creating pull-request, each engineer adds rest of engineers in his team as reviewers. For teams that are quire big, this causes unnecessary typing (even with auto-complete on names). Is there a way to enter all team members at once? thx

Hi Mauj,

This is currently not possible, though I understand it causes certain inconvenience for pull request with many reviewers. There's currently a feature request open for adding a group of users to a pull request, which you can see at Please consider voting for it, as well as adding yourself as a watcher so you can track its progress directly. Feel free to also add any comment to it. You may refer to Atlassian's Policy regarding the implementation of new features.

I'd also like to suggest an alternative that you may use to make things easier. You may use the /rest/api/1.0/projects/{projectKey}/repos/{repositorySlug}/pull-requests/{pullRequestId}/participants REST API function to add reviewers to your pull request. Using it once for each user would also be a manual work, but you may consider using along with some script to add your users based on a list of users.

Check Workzone for Stash add-on which lets you configure groups for Pull Requests 

Not exactly what you want, but it will make your life easier: The Stash Reviewer Suggester plugin is free and it gives you a list of suggestions you can use with one click. After a bit of use, it will suggest pretty much exactly the users you need to specify all the time.
