How to tag groups in projects on JIRA?

When you are commenting on a project is there a way you can tag a whole group instead of one by one?

Thanks!

What do you mean by "commenting on a project"? JIRA Projects does not have comments, JIRA Project issues does. 

Assuming you meant JIRA Project issues and by "tag" you mean by @mentions? As you can see, it will only work with single JIRA accounts, not user groups or roles. What's your use case here? So that a group can be notified? You can create a "generic" JIRA account that will have a team's distribution list as its email so that by mentioning this account, you will send an email to the distro list.

Is this been improved or added on in any way? I to would like to create a group or email group to mention with @mentions and I would prefer to not have to create an account to. There should be a way to create a project email group software team group so that if I want them all to see a comment I can simply just @SoftwareTeam or something of that nature.
