Is it possible to set team leader as watchers when one member of his team submitted a JIRA request?

Hi,

Is there a organisation structure set up where we can automatically set team leaders as watchers when one member of his team submits a request through JIRA?

Not possible in JIRA onDemand for sure because it is not supported out of the box in JIRA.

A workaround would be to add a user custom field on issue and put the team lead in that field (manual step while creating/editing issues). Modify the notification scheme to send notifications to the user in that custom field.

Thanks Jobin. This is what I have done while waiting for a response. Sounds like I'm on the right track as that's your recommendation too.
