How / Where can I turn automatic watches out of comments off?

Hi there,

we are importing mails as a support channel into our service desk.
Now I saw that all issues have automatically watchers on the tickets.

It seems that they are added automatically after commenting (even internally an issue)?

Where can I turn this function off (for my service desk project)?

Best & Thanks

Hi @Matthias Fleschütz,

you shoud definitly check the following knowledge base article: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-stop-being-automatically-added-to-the-watcher-s-list-when-working-on-issues-298975297.html

If a user comments an issue, the user will start watching the issue if the user profile preferences are set to "autowatch".

Hope that helps.

Best wishes

I see this this in our preferences, but when I change to 'disable' it doesn't allow me to save the changes. It says 'Something went wrong'

Any suggestions
