A great replacement for Component Watcher by Burning Code


This plugin allows you to watch at a project level (i.e. by component, issue type, priority...), automatically add watchers to issues on creation/update or get timed (scheduled) notifications based on a JQL query.


  • To watch a project you specify criteria. This allows users to get notified of changes without having to constantly add yourself as watcher to lots of Issues. Features include:
    • Specify the events you are interested in and criteria to limit notifications sent
    • Get notification of changes by email or within Jira
    • Send emails to individual users or groups
  • To automatically add watchers you need to specify when you want this to occur. Features include:
    • Specify conditions to limit when watchers are added
    • Watchers can be added when an issue is created or updated
  • Add watchers at the creation of an issue by adding our watchers field in the Issue create screen.
  • Get scheduled notifications (one per issue) based on JQL query
  • Privacy and security
