Hey Taher!

That should be accomplishable using a script like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours

//Get appropriate managers
def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

//Get your custom field
def customField = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject().find{ == "Custom Field Name"}
//Grab the application user that you'd like to add as a watcher from the custom field
def userToWatch = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)

//Set the user to watch the provided issue
watcherManager.startWatching(userToWatch, issue)

This script assumes that the custom field that you are working with is a SINGLE username and that you are using this script in an application that already provides the issue as a preset value.

If you could provide me with some more specifics as to what exactly you are needing this for, I could supply you with a more specified script :)

Let me know if that works for you!
