bug to remove watcher in create transition?

I am trying to remove watchers in the create transitions as users are automatically added as watchers when they create issue but my script does not seem to work.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
Locale en = new Locale("en");
def watchers = watcherManager.getWatchers(issue,en)
def issWatchers = issueManager.getWatchersFor(issue)
log.error watcherManager.getWatcherCount(issue)
log.error watchers
log.error issWatchers
log.error issue
log.error watcherManager.isWatching(watchers[0],issue)
watchers.each {usr ->
watcherManager.stopWatching(usr, issue)
}
log.error watcherManager.isWatching(watchers[0],issue)

In the log I manage to get a watcher count and the user but the isWatching is giving a false return, is this a bug which resulted in this script not working?

the log returned this

1
[usr]
[usr]
issue-1
false
false

 

However if I run this in other transition it works.

This widget could not be displayed.

I have a feeling that auto-watch watchers are added later in the creation of the issue - your script is running at a time when the issue knows it is going to have watchers, but they aren't actually on the issue yet.

A better option maybe just to ask users to unset their autowatch flag if they don't want to be added.

But, have a look at the order of post-functions (if you're unsure, show us the order you have them in on the create transition)
