Automatically watch issues

Is there a way I can automatically (or with one click) add myself to the watchers list for all tickets in a project where I'm the lead developer?

Hi Esther,

There's currently no way to add yourself as a watcher automatically to all these tickets.

What you can do is add yourself in the notification scheme for those projects so you'll be notified on any events you may want to.

Hope this helps,

Agree with Marcus. A workaround would be to install the Watcher field plugin and do a bulk edit.

Do you have any suggestions that would work for the ondemand version that isn't supported by this plugin?

Our organization has developed a plugin to do exactly this. You can automatically watch issues based on any JQL rules you specify. You can find the plugin here.
