As a manager I want to follow certain issues, and get updates as changes are made. I am neither the owner or the assignee for the issue. Is there a feature to track or follow an issue and get notifications when changes are made?
Jira has a lot of functions, which is great for power and flexibility, but it makes the documentation really hard work. It can be really hard to find what you're looking for when you haven't been given the right words to look for. I'd have struggled to find "watchers" as well.
I wanted to add there are two (2) solutions. There is "watching" (that I see you have already been made aware of). There is also "sharing." In the upper right hand corner of the ticket, the issue can be "shared" with you; which also provides you automated emails every time there is a ticket update.
