Is there a way to set default watchers for project issues? I know that creator of an issues automatically becomes a watcher of that issue. Is there a possibility to have every new issue in a project assigned default watchers (say, project manager, tech lead, etc.)?
Since it is JIRA OnDemand, you can't add any plugins and hence overriding standard functionality is not an options.
But you should be able to achieve the same behavior by adding project lead etc in the notifications.
This "Sort of" solves the problem. This thread was specifically opened for automatically being added as a watcher by default. Your solution achieves something similar but the person is not added as a watcher. The person is simply notified of everything without being an actual watcher on the issue in JIRA.
