New Features

Exclusion for some Source branches of pull requests

  • Option to exclude Code Owners for pull requests with source branches matching a pattern.

    • Use-cases:

      • Enforce reviews to master branches, except if they are release merges, e.g release/x.y.z -> master

      • Automated dependency updates by bots

# To exclude code owners functionality for pull requests with certain source branches,
# you can add the CODEOWNERS.source_branch_exclusion_pattern followed by a 
# branch pattern to your CODEOWNERS file. 
# The whole CO file is then not active for pull requests with matching source branch.
# For example if you want code owners to be inactive for pull requests create by renovate bot with source branch starting with renovate, add

CODEOWNERS.source_branch_exclusion_pattern renovate/*
