There’s a new way to reinforce your team’s code reviews. Now you can specify who in your organization can dismiss reviews on a protected branch.

In the last year, we’ve been updating pull requests with features that help teams give feedback and make sure only the highest quality code makes it into their projects. You can leave, manage, request, and dismiss reviews, as well as protect branches and limit merging rights. With restricted review dismissals, you can also ensure important feedback gets addressed.

Completely remove the ability to dismiss reviews on a protected branch or restrict that ability to a subset of users or teams specified in your branch protection settings for any organization repository.
