Exclude existing watchers from receiving a Send Email notification using Automation for Jira

If an issue has 2 watchers, and a 3rd is added, is it possible to not send an email to the first two, who already received one?

I am using Automation for Jira, and the rule is essentially: when the Watcher field is changed, Send Email to Watchers. 

Any idea how to exclude existing watchers? I saw a separate article on how to avoid sending an email to an initiator who is also a Watcher, but nothing on other existing watchers.

Hi @lukec 

You may be able to do this by removing the prior values from the Watchers using changeLog or fieldChange.  Please look at this help to see how those work:
