I found the solution. I edit the workflow (diagram) post function in "Create issue" and add Script Post-Function - there URL: /YOUR_URL/atlassian/jira/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/scripts/groovy/autwatcher.groovy and there I upload file (groovy script) which contains:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def watcherManager = componentManager.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = componentManager.getUserUtil()

def watchUsers = {usernames ->
usernames.each {
def user = userManager.getUser(it)
watcherManager.startWatching(user, issue.getGenericValue())

def users = ["USERNAME"]

And it works :)

I read about JIRA Component Watcher but it is now: 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable. Is it something like that what is proper?

You could add an Update issues post function to the create issue transition workflow. The general technique is describe here: How to update issues after initial issue create . Watchers is one of the things that can be set or added to.

I don't see how post function can be used for this purpose - there are only 2 choises: Update Issue Status and Update Issue Field, and non of them can be used to add watchers to an issue.

Could you tell me, how to do that?

can we add roles as watchers in groovy scripts when an issue is created
