Administrators can now disable autowatch
We've implemented a new JIRA option that allows administrators to disable the autowatch feature (introduced in JIRA 5.0.3) for all users. To configure autowatch for all users, navigate to Administration > User Preferences (in Users section) > Default autowatch.
Users can choose to inherit the global autowatch setting or override it via their user Profile > Preferences > Autowatch setting.
Please note, if you are upgrading from an older version of JIRA, then all users who have not explicitly set their Autowatch setting will have it set to 'Inherit from global settings'.
