Patterns only need to match a suffix of the fully qualified branch or tag name. Fully qualified branch names look like refs/heads/master, while fully qualified tags look like refs/tags/1.1.

3.1.2: resolved issues on

  • Allow merge if PR author is single Code Owner in rule

    • PR could not be merged before, if creator has a matching personal rule and merge check active with numeric value for ‘Min. # of approvals’.

3.1.1: resolved issues on

  • Only add new Code Owners to pull requests on rescope events when the source branch, but not the destination branch changes.

    • Before, this led to a bug in combination with the destination branch filter feature, where manually removed reviewers got wrongly re-added.

    • It caused confusion, as rescope events triggered by changes on destination branch are not visible in pull request activities.

    • Code owners can still be added manually to pull requests as reviewers at any time and are marked as Code owners.

  • Performance improvement in rescope event handling
