Welcome to the Atlassian community!

This is not yet possible in Bitbucket on-prem. Here's the public feature request: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BSERV-10660

If you don't mind a commercial app, you can achieve this with

Code Owners for Bitbucket

It is able to auto-assign reviewers to pull requests based on CODEOWNERS files.

In the latest release we added support for Bitbucket Reviewer groups.

You can maintain your reviewer groups on project OR repo level, wherever it's the best fit for your organization and use these groups in your Code Owners rules.

For the minimal use-case similar to Default Reviewers from Bitbucket, CODEOWNERS file just looks like:


* @@YourReviewerGroupName

Let us know if you have any questions.

Hello Mounika,

I would like to expand on @Michael Rüegg _Mibex Software_ suggestion.

Workzone for Bitbucket supports Bitbucket reviewers groups as well as Active directory groups. The active directory or Bitbucket user directory is built for organising users in groups... no need to duplicate group membership with Bitbucket groups.

Workzone configuration is Web-UI based and intuitive, if you like more of a visual configuration interface.

Pull request reviewer groups can be defined on Bitbucket project, repository, branch and file/module level. This way you make sure you always invite the right people to review pull requests.

If you prefer to manage reviewers and groups via files and code, then Code Owners is your choice..

Please reach out to us if you need more details, help or want a demo.

Best, Ulrich
