How do I enable a unique watcher per project?

There are projects in which certain people have to be setup as default watchers. Is there functionality in JIRA to do this?

Can you put more information on this question? Is this submitted by accident? smile

Was submitted in accident, have modified it now smile

There are a couple of ways to accomplish this:

  • You can create a "Role" and name it as Watchers then update your notification scheme to add this role.
  • Create a post-function to update the "Watchers" field (you may need to install the JIRA Watchers add-on).
