Listener for catching abstract JIRA events (watcher added, watcher deleted)

Hi everybody,

i am trying to create a custom listener, by developing a custom plugin, for catching add or delete watcher on an issue.

I have created the plugin sceleton with atlassian SDK.

I have also took a look in the following API resources:

I have the following problems:

  • I do not know how i will fire the event only when watcher is added or deleted
  • Is it possible to have on issue history the add and delete of watchers?

Thanks in advance.

1. You don't fire the event, Jira fires the events when stuff happens, and listeners catch them and do more things. The events are already happening, you probably just want to do things with it.

2. Watcher updates are not currently logged as issue changes. Your listener could do it though "catch event, add line to history" shouldn't be that hard.
