Cloning Issues and Keeping Watchers


We ran into a slightly different issue—we cloned a ticket that was previously created so the watchers were not copied over.  After the ticket was cloned, then the watchers were re-added.  In this case, we did not receive the email that the Jira ticket was created.  Can the watchers be included when cloning tickets? Or can an email be sent after a watcher is added to an already created ticket?

Is there a version of this plugin that would work with JIRA 6.2.7? Thanks!

The ability to clone watchers is being tracked at: which is really just a sub topic of:

Your option here would be to create a custom plugin to accomplish this.
