Hi Archana, welcome to the Community!

Can you elaborate a bit more what do you mean by 'setting up a codeowner' exactly?

Are you familiar with Bitbucket Cloud permissions? Is that something that would help you?

Best regards,


Hi Ana,

Thank you for the response.

My requirement is that whenever any developer raise the pull request it should pop up with default reviewers.

There is one feature called default reviewers which is at the repo level.

I want to set default reviewers as more granular level.

To begin with at folder level.

e.g. I have one repo called Test and it contains backend and front-end code.

Now i need one set of reviewers for backend and other set of reviewers for the front-end. 



Thank You,

I would like to know the answer to this as well. Github has had this feature for 2 years, and it looks like there's a plugin available for Bitbucket Server.

Indeed, it's sad to not have this feature for so long, big companies cannot work properly in Bitbucket with the monorepo trend because of this.

This is also something my team is trying to do, "codeowner" is the term Github uses. If Bitbucket could support the same format of file that'd be awesome

Are there any roadmap plans to support this? We also really need this feature which has been in github for multiple years.

Any updates from bitbucket folks on this? Just trying to get an idea if it's being considered or whether I need to start looking at alternative providers. Thanks.
