Number of approvers setting for Merge Request in Group Level

Hello Everyone!

In my organization, I would like to set mandatory merge request for all the projects merging into master branch. so, Number of Approvers required should be greater than 0 is what I would like to set for all projects. However, It is tedious and a hectic task to go and set it for thousands of projects, so I am looking for any solution to do it in a single task. My idea is to set the MR approvers > 0 at Group Level thereby all the sub directories and projects in the group level will incur those settings.
I need suggestions and If there is any way like that to do
FYI,

  • We’re using gitlab.com (SaaS) managed by gitlab itself
  • I tried do it by Merge Request approvals through API, but this option is also at project level only not at group level

Thanks in advance!
