Set eligible pull-requst reviewers from group?


users with repo-read-permission can be set as reviewers.

But I like to limit the users to a subset of those, defined in a Bitbucket group. By this, the PR-author or someone who edits the PR could only select users a) with at least repo-read-permisson and b) is in that group. And only users of a) and b) could add themself as reviewer.

Is this possible?

Best regards, Johannes

Hi Johannes,


This is currently possible with any built-in functionality, but I could imagine a custom add-on being able to tweak the behaviour.

Alternatively, if what you really care about it who can _approve_ a PR for the purposes of passing merge checks, you could use default and required reviewers functionality to avoid a loophole where a non-"blessed" reviewer causes a merge-check to pass. Note that this doesn't address your stated goal of preventing people from being added as reviewers or approving, but perhaps your underlying doesn't require that.
