Is there a "project watchlist" add on?

We have a user that wants to be added as a watcher to all the issues in a project (on multiple projects).

We've written querys/filters for him, and tried subscriptions and RSS feeds, but the results are not like being on a watch-list.

He really wants the minutia of "Severity changed from Serious to Minor" in his email w/out having to open the bug via a web page and looking at the transaction or history log.


I've written and API and via CRON I can find new bugs and add him as a watcher, and this gets it mostly done, but we really don't want to be in the business of maintaining that.

If there's a need to receive email updates as if the user were a watcher in all issues from several projects, the easiest way is configuring a Notification Scheme appropriately, and set it to be used by all the desired projects.

Follow these steps:

  1. create a new project role (name it ie: 'notified')
  2. edit the notification scheme used by the project(s) to add the project role 'notified' to the desired events
  3. ensure the same notification scheme is set in all the projects the user wants to be notified of
  4. add the user to the 'notified' project role in each of those projects
