GitHub pull requests have less than approvals


In GitHub, repository administrators can require that all pull requests receive a specific number of approving reviews before someone merges the pull request into a protected branch. It is also possible to require approving reviews from people with write permissions in the repository or from a designated code owner.

If a collaborator attempts to merge a pull request with pending or rejected reviews into the protected branch, the collaborator will receive an error message.

  • Attribute: required_approving_review_count
resource "github_branch_protection_v3" "example" {
  required_pull_request_reviews {
+    required_approving_review_count = 2
