You create pull requests (PRs) to review and merge code changes in a Git repository on Azure Repos. Team members and stakeholders can review changes and give feedback before merging the code into the target branch. Reviewers can also comment on changes and vote to approve or reject the code.

Teams can require PRs for any changes on protected branches, and set branch policies to require certain PRs to meet specific criteria.

There are several ways to list, filter, view, and open PRs for a project.

Prerequisites

  • To view or review PRs, you must be a member of the Azure DevOps project with Basic access or higher. If you aren't a project member, get added.

List pull requests

You can list PRs by using the Azure DevOps project website, Visual Studio, or the Azure DevOps command line.

Manage PRs you own or are assigned to with the Pull Requests tab in the Code page on the web.

Filtering the PR list helps you find and organize PRs to prioritize the most important files in your workflow.

Open a pull request

When you open a PR from the browser, from Visual Studio, or from Azure CLI, the PR Overview page opens in the browser.

To open a PR in the browser, select the PR from the list on the Pull requests page. The PR opens to its Overview tab. The Overview tab shows the PR title, description, reviewers, linked worked items, history, and status. You can see a summary of branch policies that are passing or failing, and see comments reviewers have made.

On the PR Files tab, you can review the actual changes in the PR files. On the Updates and Commits tabs, you can see changes the author has made to update the PR branch.

To review changes, make comments or suggestions, or approve or vote on the PR, see Review pull requests.
