Turning off auto watching of apps by default


Right now, whenever we add a new app it automatically adds us as a watcher to that app. Is there an organisation wide setting that allows us to turn this off? It’s annoying to have to unwatch every new app we add. Thanks!



Hi @adamapplab,

Thanks for asking this here!

Unfortunately there is no option for this right now.

Is there an organisation wide setting that allows us to turn this off?

I wonder if this should rather be a personal preference/option, instead of an Organization one?
I guess there’s use case for both, but IMO a personal “don’t watch new apps I’m invited into” option would be better, as that could cover non org apps as well.

What do you think?



Note: I moved your question to be a #feature-request, I hope you don’t mind - feel free to vote on it to bump its priority! :wink:



You’re right. Having it as a user based option is a much better solution!

Got it, created an internal card for this too, we’ll discuss it as soon as possible.

In the meantime, to bump its priority feel free to vote on this #feature-request!

Thanks again for creating this discussion thread @adamapplab, and let us know if you’d have any questions! :slight_smile:



This is quite annoying for bigger organizations with new repos being added to Bitrise often. @viktorbenei have you had a chance to discuss this internally?



Hi there!

I wanted to let you know that this is something that we have been discussing for quite some time now, and have plans to implement this. We already have designs and a refined flow for this, which, although I can’t give an exact ETA at this moment, should not be long now :slight_smile:
