Is there a way to automate assigning task watchers from epic watchers?

I have several rules that create epics at specific times and other rules that create sub-tasks for those epics. My problem is, I cannot find a way to assign the sub-tasks watchers to those of the parent epic. I have researched this extensively and I am at a loss as to how to get this done.

You should be able to use the "Related issues" branch and "Manage Watchers" action with the smart value: {{triggerIssue.watchers}}


You can loop over whatever issue you can match with a JQL (the above example will loop over all stories of an Epic)

You can then us the add watchers action and the smart value from the trigger issue, which should be your Epic
