How to create a project automation rule triggered when the list of watchers has been modified Edited



I am new to "JIRA Automation" add-on and currently in trial period to see if it matches our needs.


=> I wish to notify watchers when the list of watchers is modified.


I tried creating a ruel "Field Value Changed" but could not find any way of doing that. As watchers do not appear in the list of fields of issues.


Any other hint on how to do that ?


thanks in advance,

Hey there Benoît,

Unfortunately Jira doesn't have any hooks for us to listen to for the Watchers being added, so this is won't be possible until Atlassian allows us to do this.
