Hi Val,

There is a separate New Action for Manage Watchers. You should use that instead of Edit Issue. 

Hi John,
thanks for the response.
But if I will choose people, am I right that it will add them all?
I need only people assigned to sub-tasks to be added as the watchers to Parent type.watchers.png

I am about to leave for lunch, but real quick, take a look at the Can I use smart-values? link and see about using a smart value instead of an actual name. 

yep, sure
checked...but can't get what to write and how to use it, unfortunately (it's the first time I use this tool)
