Manage Watchers in Create Issue

Hi,

Is it possible to manage/add to the Watchers list when creating an issue? I would find it very helpful to assign the ticket to a user and then add Watchers in the create issue step.

Thanks

David

So... right now...this is not possible without plugin?

You can use the Post transition functions to add a watcher as part of the workflow.  (Just make sure you put the field update after the ticket creation). It doesn't provide the versatility that I would have liked, but it solves my present problem.

Works great: you can add watchers on create, or change them on edit. (And if you want to change them before Commenting, do edit but don't change any fields)

Link does not work...
