I dont' believe SUBSCRIBERS attribute is supported via JavaScript ( .. We set subscribers on creation of certain work items but we do it via Java-based participants.

I want to support Susan's statement.

You can, as far as I am aware, not access the subscribers. They are not an attribute but a collection. There is no attribute defined either. See:

Is there any other way to set subscriber based on few other attributes? eg- want to subscribe to a user if the status is Submitted and a component is X?

Yes, within a java-based participant. Within the participant, you have normal java logic based on the values present in the work item after the save.  You can get the status and the component (whatever attribute that is, the built-in Category or a custom attribute) and then based on if-then-else logic, subscribe who you want.

See for a participant and for the API. It is client API, but the common API on the server would allow this in the same way.
