Jira Automation cannot copy watchers from trigger issue

When creating a ticket using Jira Automation, it does not allow to copy the watchers from the trigger issue. Nor there is an option to achieve that.

Our set up is on a project that whenever a ticket is transitioned to DONE, a ticket is created copying most values and changing the due date. That is all good and it works. The problem is that Jira Automation does not allow to copy the watchers from the trigger issue. It only allows to add or remove specific people. Th ewatchers vary on each task.

Is there a way for Jira Automation to copy the watchers from the trigger issue?

Di you try clubbing branch on "most recently created issue" and manage watcher action. Try something like this:
