Is it possible for pull-request author to be also a reviewer ?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Using pull requests in Bitbucket Server

I would like to know if a pull-request author can also be a pull-request reviewer. 

It seems that I cannot add myself as reviewer when I create a pull-request.

Here is the use-case:

  • Several developers commit on a branch.
  • The project manager creates the pull-request; he is the "author" of the PR.
  • The project manager wants to be part of the review.
  • The project manager accept/refuse the PR based on the reviews.

You cannot. That beats the purpose of a review smile

Maybe it be usefull for dissociative identity disorder.

Is there a reason you'd find this useful, Laurent? We assume that when someone creates a pull request for others to review that they already approve of their own changes, else they would keep working on them before creating a pull request.
