Reporter can see and update watchers

Hi,

After creating an issue reporter is able to see and update watchers. While standard documentation says that reporter can not see and update watchers.

Please help us resolve this problem.

Alexander,
firstly, you should check whether Reporter role include specific permissions to to read (update watchers). If not, goto
"YouTrack Url/editGroup/Reporters#groups-tab=Permissions View". There you can see all permissions that granted to a Reporter. Most likely, a user with a role Reporter is included in the other group that has the mentioned permissions.

Hello, Alexander

As I have checked our Reporter role permissions are:

Our users with Reporter role is in "All Users" group only. "All Users" group has no any roles and permissions.

So there is no reason for reporter to see and update Watchers, but he can. Either there is a bug or I misunderstand something.

I see. In your case a user with a role Reporter is a creator of an issue. By design this user is able to manage watchers of the issue he created.
