import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def watcherManager = componentManager.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = componentManager.getUserUtil()

def watchUsers = {usernames ->

def user = userManager.getUser(it)
watcherManager.startWatching(user, issue.getGenericValue())
}
}

def users = ["comma", "separated", "usernames"]
watchUsers(users)

Hi,

we use a workflow post function of the "Jira Workflow Toolbox" app  for that purpose: Add or remove watchers. It's quite simple and you don't have to code it yourself.

Thanks that is necessary!!!!
