How do I see who is watching my issues?

In JIRA I see where I can see how many people are watching my issue, but don't know how to tell who the watchers are? How do I see who is watching an issue?

Hi, to see the watchers you have to press in the number that indicates how many watchers are. If you can't press it check if you have the Administer watchers permission for that project.

Thanks Ramiro, we don't have that permission set up I guess because we can't click on teh number. I checked our Global Permissions but don't see the option for Watchers Permission, can you advise where I would go to give access?

Thank you so much Ramiro, I was able to add the permission and we can now see those watching issues. I appreciate your help!

Hi, I dont see the response of where to look to see the watcher permission. Please share.
