We are happy to announce that we’ve published a new Cloud version of Code Owners for Bitbucket on . 🎉
Better usability by using Webcard instead of Pull Request Comments

Comments have the disadvantage that they can be overlooked in long threads, but also that they generate a lot of notifications.
With this release all Code Owners related information in pull requests are shown in a Code Owners specific webcard.
The following screenshot shows the assigned Code Owners of the pull request including their approval status:
Furthermore, the webcard gives hints like how to get started with Code Owners
or potential configuration problems like a non-protected CODEOWNERS file:
