Everytime a certain user adds a comment they automatically become a Watcher

Hello all,

We are using JIRA v5.2.10...

I have no idea why this is happening, but hope someone can help. I created a JIRA Internal Directory user called 'jirajelly'. I use this account when I run jelly scripts to escalate Issues. When I escalate an issue, I add a comment to the Issue. When this happens, it is automatically adding 'jirajelly' to the Watch list.

I thought this must be happening because of the Jelly script or something. I then, however, manually log in as this user and made a comment on an Issue in a different project and it is still adding jirajelly as a watcher. This is not happening when we add comments as other users we created.

Does anyone know where I can go to stop this user from being added as a watcher?

Thanks,

Mike
