How to automatically unapprove when pull request is changed?



We would like to automatically "undo" approves for a pull request when it is updated - it is too easy to make mistakes without it.

There is a plugin for BitBucket Server (, but there seems to be none available for Bitbucket Cloud.


Is there any other way for us to realize this?


Kind regards,

Roderik van Heijst

Hello Roderik,

If you have a Premium plan, you can enable required merge checks that will unapprove pull requests when the source branch is modified. There are other merge checks available as well. See the merge checks documentation page for more details.
