remove myself as a watcher from multiple issues at once

During a start up phase with a new group I am supporting in their use of JIRA I have ended up as a watcher on upwards of 250 tickets.  I do not need to be a watcher on nearly all of those tickets.  Is there any way to mass change the tickets to remove me as a watcher?  Thank you!

Hi there, 

Yes, you can. To do so, you just need to:

  1. Run a JQL search that brings all the issues
  2. Click on the 'Tools' grey button >> Bulk all issues
  3. Select the issues
  4. On the Choose Operation screen, select 'Stop Watching Issues'
  5. Confirm the operation and that's it! smile

Please let us know if this helped you.
