Cloning issues

Is there a way when cloning issues to also clone the watchers even though they have no action on the issue just a watchers on the state of the issue?

Seems not possible with the JIRA clone feature due to

However you might be able to achieve that using an add-on like this one the only downside is that it is paid :)

Also you can write a listener with script runner that will fire on createIssue event and check if the issue is cloned and copy all the watchers from the original issue.

Thank you - will look into this.
