add watchers based on security level

I want to implement the function that automatically adds watchers according to the security level.


for example,


If I select A security level and create an issue, users A and B are added to the watcher.

If I select a B security rating and create an issue, only user A is added to the watcher.


I have a scriptrunner plug-in and I want to use it.

Hi @sujin_yoon 

I believe what you can do is create a listener that will run a script to create an issue and add watchers to that issue. The listener can look for issue create/update event and you can add logic in the code to check the value of the security level.

Take a look at the scripts on this page. These scripts will give you some ideas on how to add watchers on newly created issues.

I hope it helps.
