Hey there, raerlk.

Can you please check if you have the necessary permissions that should be able to allow you to perform this action as per the following documentation?

I just want to know is there any other way of letting a user to set watchers without giving him the the administrative privelege, because i don't want him to give total control but the setting users.

Hey there again.

You can set the necessary permission as explained in the https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions documentation.

Voters & Watchers Permissions

Tested this on my end and works fine.

Warm regards,

Danial

Hi realk,

give the user the Manage Watchers permission, then he can manage watcher. I guess he already have View Voters and Watchers permission so he can see watchers.That is basicly what Danial was trying to tell you.
