@Gavin I think you need to rethink your process. If the process is so complex that it requires a workaround on your security policy you should be looking to simplify it or change it so it supports your security model. What issue are you having that you have to remove security to perform an action in Jira?
- item 1 - Group A - Can view the issue
- item 2 - Group B - Can not view the issue
- item 3 - Group A - can add a member of Group B to the watcher field allow them to view the issue.
current scheme: Level 1 Security Level
- when group A member adds a Group B member into the watchers field.
here was an error adding watcher
How can I add Group B member into the watchers list so that they can view the issue without removing the level 1 security level?
@Gavin The issue is the fact that you are using the watcher field. There are several enhancement requests that ask for watcher field to be utilized in the manner that you are asking but have not moved forward yet. You can easily create a multiselect user picker custom filed to your project and add individuals that way. It is supported and will not require you to change the issue security to add individuals.
