As an administrator, I want to set a watch for a certain repo/branch/whatever for all users and at the same time set email watches to immediate for all users as well. I want all users to be notified of any changes.
Is it possible?
FishEye watches are meant to be managed by individual users, administrator can allow/disallow watches for particular repositories or globally for all repositories, but individual users are expected to enable those watches then. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/Watches
There is a plugin provided though to allow administrators to control actual watches for individual users or group of users, see https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.fisheye.plugins.fisheye-watchers-plugin Perhaps you want to give it a try?
According to the documentation, folks can configure their own Watches, or you can configure watches for them for a single repository or all repositories. If you want it down at the branch level, you'd probably have to define that specific branch as its own separate repository in Fisheye (shouldn't negatively affect parent/main repo).
As an admin, my experience is that folks have a tendency to ignore email notifications from Fisheye/Crucible if they get too many, and I actually recommend they configure their Profiles for specific batch notifications of only some notifications for that reason. You might end up with an "automatic delete" behavior if you make this mandatory instead of voluntary.
