Notify Watcher allows you to watch projects (rather than Issues) and to add email support for notify users when they are added or removed as watchers. There is also an invite feature to notify users, by email, of Jira issues they may be interested in


Features include:

  • Add project watcher(s) to watch all or a subset of issues in a project
  • Reduce project issues watched using JQL and selecting which events to monitor
  • Send personalised emails when:1. Adding / removing watchers to an Issue. 2. Adding / removing watchers for a project3. Sending an invite to notify user(s) of an Issue that may be of interest to them
