Re-asking this question since the current "Answered" question, didn't really answer the question.
I want to be able to add others to watch tickets so they receive their email notification.
Where has ADD WATCHERS gone?
Hey @Anthony Brittis
Click on the Lozenge with the number displaying the number of watchers. ex: 0 if no one is watching the issue.
This should bring up a dialog that will allow you to add other watchers, assuming you have the project permission configured to do so.
Hope that helps.
Hi Rogelio, actually I can still manage watchers in the old view. That is, right now in Jira cloud when I view an issue in the old view, on the right-hand side next to "Watchers" it shows the number of watchers. When I click on that number it opens a window with (1) a list of the users that are watching, and (2) an "add watchers" input box. Thus I can view, add and remove watchers in the old view.
Hi @Xavier Poulin, some of my team members had this problem recently. The solution was a bit tricky to find: it turned out I needed to give them the "Browse Users and Groups" privilege on the "Global Permissions" page https://yourdomain.atlassian.net/secure/admin/GlobalPermissions!default.jspa. Hope that helps.
