Automatically subscribed based on custom field

Ciprian Spiridon (3125) | asked Jul 30 '15, 9:55 a.m.
 Is there a way to add subscribers automatically to a workitem based on entries on particular "Contributer" type field?

I mean this is done by default for the "Created by" and "Owned by" fields of the workitem but I would like to extend this also to other custom fields like "Customer responsible" field (type contributor). Chosen person should be automatically subscribed to the workitem.

Does anyone know how can I manage this?

RTC version 4.0.7.

Reading attribute values is explained in and in the server this is an example:
