How do i add jira-user group as watcher to a ticket in jira.
Lets say i have group called "A" which has user1, user2 and user3.
I want to add these people as watcher to a ticket. Instead of adding individual users, is there a way i can add group "A" as watcher so that everyone in that group will get notified?
Yes, I'm afraid you do.
But watchers are individual accounts, so that's the only way to do it with watchers.
If you're willing to move away from "watching", then you have another option. Add a custom-field of type "group picker", then add "event: custom group field" to the notification scheme.
That lets you add group notifications, but only as a field on the issue, not as a "watcher". It won't consume a licence though.
