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:

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

I`m afraid that there is no way to automatically disable this option.
As a workaround, I would recommend you to disable only the notification related with each repository
To do his: Go to Settings > Notifications

visit Red Boxtime for more watch related info.
