Add watcher does not show on updating issue

Added by Egbert Koomen about 7 years ago

In the roles & permisson all monitoring items are marked.
The user that has logged in has the correct role.
Stil the possibility to add watchers while updating an issue does not show? (It does show when creating a new issue but that is not what I'm looking for)
Can anyone tell me what is wrong?

Aren't those from the monitoring & controlling plugin?

No just standard Redmine. In the definiton of roles & permissions screen.

I want to add watchers when updating the issue.

The standard Redmine "Roles & Permissions" screen does not contain the string "monitoring". The permission is called "add watcher" and is in the section "Issue tracking". You're mistaken in believing that
a) "monitoring" is standard redmine and
b) it would be the place to configure the "add watchers" permission

I mean monitors.
I would like to add monitors while updating an issue.
See the illustration, i thougt this is standard Redmine concerning roles on issues.

Indeed. "Voeg monitors toe" is the Dutch (nl) translation of "Add watcher" (permission_add_issue_watchers).

It is available, but I think you're looking for it in the wrong place. It is not located in the "issue view" like while creating issues. Instead, - on the issue show view (redmine.tld/issues/id) - the feature is located in the right-hand (grey-ish) sidebar. See the screenshot.

HTH...

Btw: these translations are not the best in my opinion. It is not used in a consistent manner also. See eg. permission_delete_issue_watchers (Dutch, nl translation: "Verwijder volgers").
