Can you log time for everyone tagged as watchers on a user story or ticket?

Since you can tag individual users as watchers on a user story or ticket, can you create a time log entry for all of those people at the same time?


One meeting for one hour + Seven attendees = one hour logged for each of the tagged people. 


Thank you.

If you're on Jira Server or Data Center, you can do something like this with Power Scripts for Jira.

for(number i = 0; i < size(watchers); i = i + 1){    
string userWatcher=getElement(watchers, i);
addWorklogAdjustEstimate(key, userWatcher, "1h", currentDate(), "generated via auto-worklog");



The trick would then be to determine when this script should fire. You could fire it when work is logged via an event listener or you could create a button to perform this action when coupled with something like Power Actions for Jira.

Thank you Justin.
