Problems updating descriptions on pull requests.

Every time I try to update the description it's giving me this error message and unable to save. It's been doing this since yesterday.

"Something went wrong
We couldn’t update the description. Wait a few minutes and then try again."

Hi, @Kento Kawakami! Welcome to the community! 

The “Something went wrong" message usually comes with a 5xx response that shows a Sentry ID code. This code may give us some indication of what is causing this issue. In this case, could you please follow the next steps to find the Sentry ID, so I can further investigate this issue?

  • Open the "Developer tools" in the browser you are using (click on the three dots > More tools > Developer Tools): 


  • Then navigate to the Bitbucket page that gives you this error 

  • In "Developer tools", select the Network tab

  • Find and select the request that gives a 5xx response

  • In the Headers panel (after you select the request with 5xx response), check if there is a field named sentry id.

  • If you can provide us with the value of that field, I can look it up in our system for further info.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

I should have just done this from the beginning. I just saw that the request that was coming back was a 400 where one of the reviewers on it has left the company after the PR has been created. Their account is no longer in the workspace and was causing that 400 error when saving changes to the description. I simply removed them from the PR reviewer list and that fixed the problem. Thank you!
