I do this presently for all defects added to my products' projects. Presuming you are a JIRA Server customer, you need to install the following plugins, both free:
Once installed, add the watcher custom field to your screen configuration and scheme (see note below about which screen). This field simply lets you display/edit the watcher list.
Then, modify your workflow's Create Issue transition, adding a post-function to modify a custom field (this post-function comes with the JIRA Suite Utilities). You can modify the watcher list field to set specific values (like your username). This does, I believe, over-write any existing watchers, so I recommend you not display this field on the screen to add a new issue for that issue type/project.
Thanks for your comments. I'm not the admin so I can not touch the notification scheme.
I'm following more than 10 projects and I'm manually bulk watching issues/stories of these project every day.
I wonder if I can watch any new created updates of a project on JIRA (the same as Confluence):
I'm watching a space on confluence so I can be notified of all new created pages.
