How to add watchers uisng script-runner cloud? Edited

Hi, I am trying to update watcher field using Script-runner but can't seem to find the right way to do it.

def issue = "DEMO-1"


def result = put('/rest/api/2/issue/' + issue)
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
.body([
fields:[
"watchers" : [
"testuser1",
"testuser2"
]
]
])
.asString()
if (result.status == 204) {
return 'Success'
} else {
return "${result.status}: ${result.body}"
}

 Error-returned:

Serializing object into 'interface java.util.Map'
GET /rest/api/2/issue/DEMO-1 asObject Request Duration: 698ms

[testuser1, testuser2]
PUT request to /rest/api/2/issue/DEMO-1 returned an error code: status: 400 - Bad Request

Watchers is not a field, it's a system generated user list.

See https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/cloud/#api/2/issue-addWatcher

Well, I got the POST request working fine. Since Atlassian Cloud API does not support UPDATE request watchers yet it cannot be implemented.
