Is this not possible via the workflow? I do not see that the Watchers field is a field that can be updated, but as it is a plugin I think it can't be modified that way. What I'm trying to do is to is when a certain transition is fired in my flow, the issue is assiged to a user. I also want to notify another team member of exactly this transition. But only this particular 'assign issue' action and not all 'assign issue' action, so a modified notification scheme is out of the question methinks.
Is this possible?
I have a Watchers field, don't seem to be able to update it myself. I have the Participants field, If I update that with just the name of the user to be notified, won't that erase the former value of the field?
Er, you don't want to edit the participants field. It's derived from data on the issue, and hence can't actually be overwritten. Even if you could bodge something in, you've then broken it - the whole point of the field is that it displays reporter, assignee and commenters. (Of course, I'm assuming your "participants field" is a participants field and not just a user-picker you've added yourself)
Watchers is a real field, and Radu's answer is correct for that.
