Watcher plugin for jira

I have downloaded the Watcher Custom Field for JIRA plugin and have also created a custom field called My Watchers. This field does appear in my Create and Edit screens but when i start to type the username, the possible matches for the user does not show up. This happens in both the Create and Edit screens. How do i get this fixed?

When you install Watchers plugin, it automatically adds a field 'My Watchers' and I believe, it will be added to the field configuration and the screens on the spot. You don't need to create a new separate custom field for this purpose and I believe, you were referring to the wrong field (the one you have created).

Find and use the My Watchers field which was created from the plugin which does the job.

Thanks Mahesh.
