How to add watcher list to email templates?

We are working to modify our email templates and have included all the system fields at the bottom of each notification but user are asking to get a list of watchers as well.  Is this possible?  If so some assistance would be helpful.

Hi Kevin,

You can use "Copy a parsed text to a field post-function" of JIRA Workflow Toolbox add-on in order to compose a text with the names of the watchers, and set a text custom field with it. Then you can include that field in your emails templates.

I show you the configuration you should use:

Text to be parsed is:

"Current issue watchers are:" + toString(textOnStringList(toStringList(%{00133}), " " + userFullName(^%)))

Note that %{00133} is field code for Watchers.
