the first you can do with

watcher = <USER>

the second you can't since you can search only for issues

If you access to database you can use the following SQL:


select * from jiraissue where id in (select SINK_NODE_ID from userassociation where ASSOCIATION_TYPE = 'WatchIssue' and SOURCE_NAME = 'username');


select distinct(SOURCE_NAME) from userassociation where SINK_NODE_ID in (select id from jiraissue where project = (select id from project where pkey='project_key'));
