In the JIRA Automation plugin, how to set watchers and how to add new watchers with existing watchers (amend watchers)?

Hi,

 

I am working on automating Bugs with the help of JIRA Automation plugin.

 

We are using JQL to edit particular issues in JIRA Automation plugin to set assignee and watchers when status of issue is INPROGRESS and assignee is NOT user_name.

 

We are having issue while setting watchers as well as setting watchers with existing watchers.

So how do we set watchers and how to add new watchers with existing watchers (amend watchers)?

Combination of Automation plugin and post function worked for me to get exact result.

The field New watchers will be set according to the evaluation of Components against the following set of rules: 
(.*Component1.*)user1,user2,user3 
This feature will be run as user in field Current user.

Automation Tools for JIRA should be capable of amending watchers in the manner you described. It is an updated version of the original JIRA Automation Plugin.
