Watches on JIRA issue creation

Is there a way to configure JIRA to automatically add myself to watch issues I create? Update User Preferences doesn't have such an option.

Thanks,
Jon

I seem to be getting e-mails on issues I create (I don't think I did
anything to cause that).

I wonder if you have a typo in the entered e-mail address or something
of the kind.

Rechecked just now-- the email address is correct. I see after creating an issue that I'm not Watching it, so I always add a Watch to it manually. I've only recently added issues, but perhaps there is no need to Watch your own issues, that you get the equivalent of a Watch automatically?

Interesting. I guess that's the cue for JetBrains to clarify.

Default settings in JIRA is to update the reporter of an issue, so you're
automatically "watching", you just don't have a "watch" on it.

yes and no.

Jira is correct that you're not watching the issue. Its just that the
notification scheme settings ( which are changable depending on the admins
wishes, for different projects ) has a notification to the reporter.

So there different things, but it would be nicer to show some indication
of notifications ( be it a watch, or due to notification schemes ).

Man I don't want to roll into yet another jira discussion. A simple
change would be to unlink the watch for the owner and say you're the
owner. It doesn't take that much.

don't worry folks I won't post again about jira.

Hello Mark,

So what else (apart from notifications) does watching an issue give one?

Best,
Andrei

From what I've seen - nothing.
