I have a requirement where i want the current user to be added as watcher whenever that issue is re-assigned to someone else. I know that this can be done with help of post function but i don't know how i can track this "re-assignment" event ??
Please help me out as i need this urgently.
The easiest way might be using the JIRA Toolbox plugin and the watchers postfunctions it provides: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.fca.jira.plugins.workflowToolbox.workflow-toolbox
Another option might be to write your own post function using the scriptrunner plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner
Autowatching might also be a solution:
If you trigger this listener on every issue assigned, issue created or issue updated event you should be able to add everybody that was once assignee to the watchers (and even the current assignee will be added). It will indeed always be the current assignee you're adding, not the old one. But this will make no difference in the end.
Do keep in mind that you cannot add somebody multiple times to the watchers so you shouldn't be worrying about that.
