I am trying to Import watchers from the CSV file, but the watchers are not updated on the issues. I have attached screenshot of the CSV file with watcher column. I map the watcher field (CSV) to watcher(jira field) and did import. But the watchers were not updated. As the per this document https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver072/importing-data-from-csv-829827152.html it says watchers can be imported. Let me know what I am missing the above steps.
Can you share the screen shot of the mapping screen and see when you type watcher in map fields what does it show.
Make sure you have project permissions.
I came up with a script to copy the watchers to the custom (multiple) user fields. I was moving issues from One project to other project and this way I was able to have custom user field moved and then copied the user field to watchers. Hope this makes sense.
Well, I made some progress. I was able to import watchers when using the External System Import from the Admin console.
However, I am still unable to import watchers using the "Import issues from CSV" option under the issue browser. I've found some workarounds using the Autowatch labs feature, but still nothing explicitly allowing me to directly import watchers via the "Import issues from CSV" option.
I'll make due for now but would prefer the ability to add watchers using the "Import issues from CSV" option as this would allow non-admin users the ability to import issues themselves.
