Currently there is an issue I am facing on my project regarding the fact that assignee field is not enough since there is almost always more than one person involved in the process of development.
The watchers' field is too general because everybody receives a ton of such notifications and they are not differentiated between the important ones and just noise.
Lately I have been introduced to the people field. Could anyone tell me please the difference between the assignee and the people field? What is your experience with the people field?
Hi @Valentin Dragin This is a "next gen" only concept I think (although there are user-picker fields for classic projects). Details available here:
If you have read that page I am confused as to what you are asking. Its a custom field that holds one or more Jira users. Assignee is a system field limited to one person. If you create a custom field rather than use the system field it won't be in any notification scheme by default.... not much else to it.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
