Hey Jignasha,

you could add a "single user picker" or "multi user picker" custom field  and name it participants f.e. 
There you could set associated user or followers-like.  

Administration -> custom fields -> add custom field (Standard for single user and advanced for multiple) and add it to your wanted screen.

Hello Simon, It works. Thanks and highly appreciate for a quick help.

Though I did it at issue level, I did not find the custom field option at project level or globally thru out every project. I want to add it globally.

To add it globally you should set the custom field on the "Default Screen".
