Add or removing watchers automatically after a workflow step/during transition

We want to add or remove watchers automatically during a workflow transition, per person or all persons belonging to a group. Any ideas how to do that?

I have found this one, but it does not work:

 

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
 
def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def watcherManager = componentManager.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = componentManager.getUserUtil()
 
def watchUsers = {usernames ->
   usernames.each {
         def user = userManager.getUser(it)
         watcherManager.startWatching(user, issue.getGenericValue())
      }
}
 
   def users = ["comma", "separated", "usernames"]
   watchUsers(users)
