When creating a pull request using the Jira and BitBucket extension for Visual Studio Code, I can't see any options in the Reviewers list. When I type a partial or exact match for another developer's name, nothing comes up either.

If I create a pull request via the BitBucket website itself, I can both see many options for developers within the Reviewers list and also it matches partial and exact names as I type.

Hi Darian and welcome to the community.

The 'Reviewers' field in the extension can only see users that are listed as default reviewers for the repo in Bitbucket Cloud.

Default reviewers can be set from the Repository settings on the website, if you are an admin for the repo.

Kind regards,

I know this is old... but we have Default Reviewers setup on Project Level not Per Repo. I think that is the problem.
When a PR  is created on BitBucket Cloud web page they will be automagically added.

But in the VSCode extension they are not added or found when I manually enter their names.

Would be nice if the Extension can be updated to use the Project level default reviewers.
