More details

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.


1. 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
  • Receive notification of changes by email or within Jira
  • Send emails to individual users or groups of users


2. 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 only when an issue is created and/or updated


3. Add watchers at the creation of an issue by setting up and configuration a watchers field in the Issue create screen.


4. Get scheduled notifications (one per issue) based on JQL query
