For more information about required reviews, see "About protected branches."
You can comment on a pull request, approve the changes, or request improvements before approving. For more information, see "Reviewing proposed changes in a pull request."
You can find a pull request where you or a team you're a member of is requested for review with the search qualifier
team-review-requested:[TEAMNAME]. For more information, see "Searching issues and pull requests."
Tip: If a pull request you approved has changed significantly, you can dismiss your review. The pull request will need a new review before it can be merged. For more information, see "Dismissing a pull request review."
- Under your repository name, click Pull requests.
- In the list of pull requests, click the pull request you'd like to review.
- On the pull request, click Files changed.
- Review the changes in the pull request, and optionally, comment on specific lines.
- Above the changed code, click Review changes.
- Type a comment summarizing your feedback on the proposed changes.
- Select Approve to approve merging the changes proposed in the pull request.
- Click Submit review.
- If required reviews are enabled and a collaborator with write, admin, or owner access to the repository submits a review requesting changes, the pull request cannot be merged until the same collaborator submits another review approving the changes in the pull request.
- Repository owners and administrators can merge a pull request even if it hasn't received an approving review, or if a reviewer who requested changes has left the organization or is unavailable.
- If both required reviews and stale review dismissal are enabled and a code-modifying commit is pushed to the branch of an approved pull request, the approval is dismissed. The pull request must be reviewed and approved again before it can be merged.
- When several open pull requests each have a head branch pointing to the same commit, you won’t be able to merge them if one or both have a pending or rejected review.
