Automation Smartvalue, get all Users from a custom field

Christian I'm New Here Sep 13, 2022

Hi community,

My goal:
When a user or multiple users are added to the custom field "Task Member" (picker) of an Issue, that user or those users should be automatically added to the watchlist of that specific issue.

My try:

(The customfield ID is doublechecked).

I also tried with the Action "Add watchers" : {{issue.fields.customfield_10515.value}}

My Problem:
I created an issue and afterwards added myself to the customfield "Task Member", however I was not added to the watchlist

Do you guys have an idea of what i am trying to do / do you know why it fails?

Thank you

Hi @Christian , 

Kindly have a try as below,
In your case, {{issue.customfield_10515}}

It is working for me like a charm and Hoping this works for you as well !
