Add Project Lead as Watcher when creating an Issue


Just wanting to automatically add the Project Lead as a watcher, particularly when the person creating the issue selects someone else as the assignee - this ensures that the Project Lead is notified of all issues creating in the project.

I've looked at adding a post function to the create step in the workflow, but I couldn't see anywhere to update the Watcher field.

Customization like this are not possible in onDemand.

However, you don't need to add the project lead as a watcher for getting notifications. Instead you can modify the notification scheme to include the project lead in addition to watchers when an event occurs.

Good point - thanks heaps for the quick response!
