      Another alternative is to use "@mentions" in the description of an issue to notify end users about the issue being created, and the recipients can then decide if they want to watch the issue.

      Original request description:

      As a Project Manager I want to make sure that respective team members (including me) are informed about new issue creation and depending on an issue type are automatically added as watchers. I want this to action to become inseparable from issue creation, so that the original issue reporter does not have to inform anyone about issu creation manually. I want to be able to control the watchers' list and nominate the users.

            Dave,
            Really? There are simply too many Atlassian developer hours spent on issues completely un-requested by the customer. It's either a fundamental product or engineering priority problem. Please remember....customers first. Accordingly, please list the top 100 customer voted issues and the expected ETA on each. This issue has over 500 up-votes. We expect more from Atlassian product managers. T

            Thanks. For my use case, the JIRA Autowatch plugin should work. What's the best JQL to enter there to trap all issues?

            Hi Marco Comerchero,

            Currently the top priorities of the JIRA development team are:

            1. Performance, especially initial page loads for highly-used pages
            2. Reducing complexity of setting up and maintaining projects
            3. Improving the UX of key tasks for software teams

            Anybody can view the top 100 (or any number) of feature requests sorted by votes. Here's a link to my filter. However, keep in mind that for many customers, relevant feature requests can be split across the JIRA Core project (JRA), JIRA Software project (GHS), and JIRA Service Desk project (JSD). I'm not sure of the value of listing all issues and their expected ETA somewhere is. As we make clear in our post, the requests on jira.atlassian.com do not represent our backlog – they are a valuable source of feedback and input into our roadmap, but are one of many different venues through which we listen to our customers. For example, improving performance and speed is the biggest investment the JIRA team is making in terms of number of developers, but it's not captured at all on jira.atlassian.com. Yet we know that working on this has a major positive impact on the day-to-day experience for a vast number of customers, and measurably more so than many individual feature requests.

            Thanks for your patience. Please contact me if you have any questions: dmeyer@atlassian.com

            i think it is a big joke ;/
            how many years shall we wait ??? ... 11 years are gone.
            it is unbelievable that Atlassian isn't able to realize such a small feature.
            sorry but it is really annoying.
