Pull Requests Author Filter Only Shows Historical Users


The Pull Requests page is crucial to our day-to-day dev-ops workflow. A good user experience in this area is paramount.


The Author Filter drop-down only lists ten users, and what is even worse, only my own account (listed at the top) is an active developer. All the other users listed are historical and no longer on the team. Thus every time I need to filter it requires keyboard input. It is quicker to filter in the git CLI than on the pull requests page.

These historical users have long since been removed from bitbucket access. So why are they listed by default in the Authors Filter drop-down?

How can I list active users first, and search for old users instead?
