If your repository requires reviews, you can dismiss pull request reviews that are no longer valid or are unable to be approved by the reviewer.

If a person who requested changes isn't available to give an approving review, or if a pull request has changed significantly since it was reviewed, repository administrators or people with write access can dismiss a review.

This changes the status of the review to a review comment. When you dismiss a review, you must add a comment explaining why you dismissed it. Your comment will be added to the pull request conversation.

You can find a pull request where you or a team you're a member of is requested for review with the search qualifier review-requested:[USERNAME] or team-review-requested:[TEAMNAME]. For more information, see "Searching issues and pull requests."

  1. Under your repository name, click Pull requests. Issues and pull requests tab selection

  2. In the list of pull requests, click the pull request you'd like to review.

  3. On the "Conversation" tab, scroll to the review you'd like to see, then click Dismiss review. Option to dismiss a review

  4. Type your reason for dismissing the review, then click Dismiss review. Dismiss review button
