add watchers based on checkboxes count

I am attempting to create a workflow that adds watchers to an issue based on the amount of ticked options in a checkboxes custom field.

 

Example:

If only one of four alternatives are ticked: add watcher UserA and UserB.

If more than one of four alternatives are ticked: add watcher UserA, UserB and UserC.

 

How would i go about doing that in a JIRA workflow?

We use JIRA 6.2.1

You'll need to find/write an add-on that provides a post-function to do that.  The post-function sounds quite simple - add UserA and UserB to watchers, then an "if" that looks at the content of the field and adds UserC if there's a match.

I'd use the script-runner to do it as usual, but you may be able to do it with other addons.

Will give it a go..
