This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Watching and Voting on an Issue
I wanted to know if it is possible to automatically watch all issues in a project, without mark each one of them individually?
I wouldn't call it a patch since it doesn't involve updating any code. It is a method to allow the project lead to assign people to a role that gets all the same updates as watchers for all issues. You need to use this carefully as it can bury them in email if the project is busy. Also, I setup the role in the permission scheme for just browse permission. I ended up changing the notifications to milestone events like create, ready for test, passed testing, and closed. No comments. That also requires creating events for the milestones you're interested in and updating the post functions in the transitions to fire those events.
First, you need to be a JIRA admin.
1. Add a new project role. Project roles are universal so they will be available in all projects. I would call the roles something like 'watch all' so it isn't confused with users manually watching issues.
2. go to the notification scheme and add the role 'watch all' to the notification you want
3. the project leads can now add users to the 'watch all' role
