CodeOwner Approval Question

Hi there! Just wondering if Code Owner approval is available on the free tier of GitLab? I’m trying to do some branch protection testing but can’t seem to find the ability to add a Code Owner as the reviewer.

Is this due to me being on the free tier?

Hi there!

Code Owner approvals (according to docs) are part of the Premium unfortunately.

And just as side note: MR approvals are on a different page :smiley: You should go to Settings > Merge Requests and have something like this:

What you are configuring is only branch protection (who can push / merge → in a way who can literally press the “Merge” button). Approvals are coming “on top” of that protection so to say, as even if you can merge, if approval is needed, you cannot merge without it.
