REST Add watcher 400 Bad Request

Have been trying to add the watch as per the API here - https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e2467 and tried setting the watch with different JSON combinations:

"john"

'"john"'

"""john"""

but none of these are working with v6.4.5 . These all fail with HTTP Status 400 - Bad Request.

Any suggestions ?

Have you done like this:

POST /rest/api/2/issue/issueKey/watchers -u admin:admin -d '"john"' -h "Content-Type: application/json"
