Jira - Email notification for Watchers on Issue

Is there a notification setting for when a watcher is added to an Issue? Currently, watchers receive email notifications when an issue is updated but not that they've been added to it.

Thanks in advance.

You should be looking for these issues:

  • https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-5494
  • https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-12355

Thanks Timothy. We'll keep that in mind.

We know the list of feature requests for this platform is very long.

Atlassian has decided not to develop this in future.
