      Atlassian Update – 25 November 2019

      Hi everyone,

      We have reviewed the issue again and decided that it is a candidate for our longer term roadmap. We are transitioning the suggestion to "Future consideration" status. It denotes that while currently it is not part of our near term plans, it is among the strongest candidates for being included in the roadmap during future reevaluations of it.

      Please also note that you can disable the option to manage watchers using the Voters & watchers permissions in Jira permission schemes. This is not a desirable solution as we can see from the comments, but in some of the use cases it may be useful. 

      We understand this decision may be disappointing, but we hope you will appreciate our transparent approach and communication. If you would like to find out what the Jira team is currently focused on and has recently delivered see the following dashboards:

      Atlassian will continue to watch this issue for further updates, so please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      When adding watchers, the user-picker dialog should only show users who have access to the project.

      We have multiple projects running on one JIRA installation, and users are generally not allowed on all projects.
      Looking through lots of users is a bit painful, and security-wise it might also be bad.
