Is it possible to configure the repository to skip "At least one reviewer must approve the most recent iteration" in case the person who performs the Pull request is the project administrator?

I have the below branch Policy:

I made the review approbation for my own commit.

But when I'm going to complete the pull request, I get the below message:

enter image description here

At least one reviewer must approve the most recent iteration.

It's possible to skip review requirement only for project administrators?

As a workaround, you can add "bypass policies" for project admins.

enter image description here

The documentation: Security groups - Git repository (object-level)

  • That made the trick, a new option appears at the end: "Override branch policies and enable merge".

  • This solution allows the author to also bypass policies such as unresolved comments and failing builds.
