Review a pull request

As a reviewer, you'll get a notification that you have a pull request to review. You can also find open pull requests from the Pull requests tab on your Dashboard.

Approve a pull request

  1. When you open a pull request, the default view shows the diff context. Start your review by going through all the the code changes throughout the pull request.
  2. You can add feedback to the pull request from the Comments section at the top or by clicking the  comment symbol to the left of a line of code.
  3. When you're done reviewing all changes and are satisfied with them, click the Approve button in the top right of the pull request.

Decline a pull request

If you aren't satisfied with the proposed changes, you can decline a pull request. To decline a pull request, click the Decline button in the top left of the page.

If you'd like to explain why you're declining, you can add comments before or after. Once you decline a pull request, no one can reopen it. Whoever wants to merge will have to open a new pull request on the same branch.
