Add watchers to an issue while creating it

Hello Community :wave:

We’ve been working hard to improve the issue creation process by implementing the ability to add watchers to an issue while you’re creating it!

This feature is rolling out slowly while we gather feedback to help us improve the experience, so you might not see it in your project straight away. You can expect to see it over the next few weeks. Customers on release tracks will see it sometime in the next month.

How to use the new add watchers feature

While you’re creating an issue, you should see a watcher icon 👁️ at the top of your issue create form. You’ll only see this icon if: 

  • watchers are enabled for Jira.

  • you have permission to manage watchers in that project.

If you have auto-watch enabled, you’ll see the icon highlighted in blue while you’re create a new issue.

Adding watchers

If you have permission to manage watchers in the selected project, you can add any watchers that have access to that project. Just select the watcher icon 👁️ and search for a name, and pick a name from the list.

If you change the selected project after you’ve added watchers, you'll still see all the watchers you added (provided you have manage watchers permissions in the newly selected project). However, after you hit Create, only the people with access to the project will be added to the issue as a watcher. We’ll let you know if any watchers weren’t successfully added to an issue.

You can check all the watchers were successfully added to the issue by viewing the issue after creating it.


I love this feature. Def nice to have.
