Description

Steps to repro:

1) Copy an issue
2) In the copy screen, set the project of the issue to a different issue
3) Click Copy and follow

The issue is copied, but the WATCHERS of the issue are not. This seems like a bug.

I'm using the latest Redmine 3.2 stable.

Option to copy watchers when copying issues (#10460).

History

#1 Updated by fangzheng (方正) over 5 years ago

Should it be a "Feature" instead of a "Defect"?
Sometimes I just need to use a issue as a template, so I don't want to copy watchers.
In my opinion, current behavior is OK.
However, an additional "copy watchers" checkbox or button is also welcome :-)

It should be optional, as fangzheng mentioned. Maybe with a configurable default value?

  • Tracker changed from Defect to Feature

  • Resolution set to Fixed

Feature added in r16509.

When copying a single issue, the original watchers are preselected, you can unselect them.
When bulk copying issues a new checkbox is added to copy watchers.
In both cases, the user gets this option only if he is allowed to add watchers.
