This is a natural expansion of the Workboard Trigger system
to support actions about Subscribers.

Context: even before this change - Workboard users
were already able to move Tasks to Columns with
nice automatisms. For instance, you can already:

  • Play a nice Sound
  • Change Task Priority
  • Change Task Status
  • Add or Remove a Task Owner
  • Add or Remove a Task Project Tag

With this change, you can also:

  • Add or Remove Task Subscribers

If you need inspiration, this feature is useful for adding
more eyes on a given work area; lighten the notifications

this specific feature - that is totally loveable,
just like you.

Closes T15162

Test Plan
  • Workboard > Column > Create Trigger
  • Add Action > Add Subscriber > (your best friend who hates NodeJS)
  • Add Action > Remove Subscriber > (your antagonist who hates PHP)
  • Move some Tasks there and here, and note that Add/Remove works
