Adding customers to watchers list causes them to see internal comments

If I add a customer(not a user or service desk agent) to the watchers list of an issue, they get notifications about external as well as internal comments. Being customers, they should not get notifications about internal comments

Is there any way to fix this?

Perhaps if you add them as Request Participants instead of Watchers they won't get internal comments.  Try that and see.

Hello Puneet,

The purpose of the Watcher is receive all notification about an issue in order to keep updated about progress, comments, modification... 

So like Juan said before, it’s better to add them as Request Participants instead of Watchers.

Great!  It is exactly the feature I was looking for. I will play around with it.
