This should be two APIs:

  • One to add watchers when creating an issues (just like the main issues form)
  • One to add/remove watchers individually (just like the sidebar actions)

I need this fixed too. We rely heavily on redmine's watchers to notify the appropriate team(s) of new issues, changes, etc. Depending on the type of issue, different watchers need to be notified.

Need it too, also now we can't even know who watched issue - need something like ?include=watchers to be implemented

+1 same here.

We got end users adding issues directly from our desktop application and would need to notify other team members :/

update: 100 EUR / 130 USD here for sponsoring this, I added a sponsoring issue to freedomsponsors but cannot link it here due to spam. Search with the title of this ticket to find it :)

Jean-Philippe, this is Tony from FreedomSponsors.
This is just a reminder that you got USD 134 waiting for you for solving this issue.
That offer was made by Paul Wehle (see his comment above).
You need to mark the issue as resolved on the FreedomSponsors website before Paul is able to pay his offer.

The issue link is freedomsponsors.org/core/issue/136/add-watchers-to-issue-via-rest-api

Cheers :-)
