Auto populate watchers list


Hi All,

Jira : 6.4.12 / Scriptrunner :

What is the best way to copy reporter when the reporter has been changed (from the original reporter) to watchers?

Thanks in advance.

I would recommend adding a listener to catch the moment when reporter is changed and get the former value through a script, adding this user to the issue's watchers. Might not be the easiest script ever but would make sure the event is captured every time!

Hope this helps!
