Force Pull Request to Master Branch in VSTS

Login to VSTS.

Navigate to the master branch for the project you want to force pull requests.

Click on the ellipsis and select Branch policies.

These are the settings I prefer.

I like to have at least one reviewer, and our team size is small enough that it’s OK, maybe not best practices, for the reviewer to approve their own commits.

I then like to have it build on every pull request, so at a minimum I know that at least my code is building properly, no need to review it if it is breaking!

Lastly, I add my reviewers group.

That’s it.
