watchers for every issue

Hello Friends,

Your favorite newbie here! I have a very basic question. I have a project lead who has made the following request: Can we build a default list of watchers for the project? We have a group that should be made watchers for every issue.

Here is what I think: I can make a list of users and give them certain set permissions. There isn't a project role called watcher.

Thoughts? Thanks. Diane

You could also create a new role if you prefer that to adding a group:

I think Bug watcher plugin does this. We used to use a Component Watcher plugin too which watches components.

Howveer, you can probably get the same watcher functionality by adding groups directly into notifications provided you can create a new notification scheme for the project. This becomes painful if you want this functionlity for all projects and that is when the plugins will help!
