I have a user who wants to be notified whenever an issue is created for a given project. I am sure this can be done but I do not see how from the manual. I do see how to watch a particular issue but not when new issues are added. Can someone please point me in the right direction for what I am sure is a DUH questions.
I had a similar requirement for a client of mine. I wanted a simple and maintainable approach that didn't require any plugins, so here's what I did:
The benefit of this approach, aside from not requiring any add-ons, is that you can tailor the notifications that are sent to your users liking without a whole lot of fuss. The drawback is that there's no "Watch project" button that an end-user can click on. An admin must add the user to a specific role/group.
The "Update Issue Custom Field " post function comes by the Jira Suite Utilities plugin. Check the compatible version for your Jira version
If you want to auto populate the watchers field before creating issue, add the users as default value for the watchers field Under Custom fields.
Custom fields -> locate watchers field -> click configure -> select edit default value -> add the required users
Hope it helps.
