Automatically add watchers for this issue

Good day!
Can't solve the problem

How to make the creation, issue, automatically add watchers for this issue

All I have found here have not helped solve the problem
Not Script Runner

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"]

Is not suitable should automatically add watchers
