scriptrunner post function to add watchers based on component

I am trying to write a post function using script runner to add watchers to the issue when created depending on components. 

I was able to get the watchers to be added but i am not able to get a condition check with component working. How do i get a list of components for the issue and then define a user list to be added as watchers.

For example the following would be true if there is a component call Foo selected:

"Foo" in issue.getComponents()*.name

Hi Hermant, I'm trying to do the same thing- can you share the script you used to add watchers upon create issue?


@Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist], can you help with this? I'm just trying to get the script to run for adding watchers upon issue create. 

Apologies, my scripting capabilities are somewhat limited.  I took a look at the link but I'm not sure it suits the use case.  Upon issue creation (post function) I need a watcher to be automatically added based on a component selected.  I couldn't find that information in the link.  sad
