In the old issue view I could see how many people were watching an issue, who they were, and add watchers.
In the new version all I can find is the Eye-con that allows me to toggle on and off whether I am watching an issue.
How do I manage other watchers in the new view?
The new issue view is still a lab feature on JIRA, so our developers are still working to implement some functionalities to it.
The one you mentioned, was already reported to our development team, so you can vote to increase the impact of the ticket and watch it and be aware of new updates:
For now, you can reverse to the old view if you really need this functionality.
Hello @Nicolas LACOUR
Actually, the Watcher functionality is properly working on the new issue view. Please, note that the feature request is resolved now:
If you are not able to manage watchers as you need, please check if you have the proper permissions under project settings > Permissions.
