Create multiple support teams(assignment groups) in Jira Service Management

This is what I want to achieve:

- Create a support group which will include team members in that group. 

- Be able to create & assign Requests and INC to group.

- Assigned group members be able to pick up unassigned tickets. 

- Get performance metrics for that group. 

- Auto queue/view creation for people assigned to that group so that they know their groups unassigned/assigned.

Hi @Amol Fadnis , welcome to the Atlassian Community!

yes, you can achieve this my making a custom field with a group picker

However, you cannot set the group as Assignee. The Assignee is either Unassigned or a member of that Group.

You can also automate which request types should be transferred to which group.

I did create a custom group, but its a cascading list. After your suggestion, I created another one as "Group Picker".


I am ok if we cannot assign it to the group, but I have to populate the values in it manually and not picking it off any "list of groups". If that makes sense. Or if I did it wrong.

There is indeed a difference between those 2 fields.

You can use either.

With a select list single choice, you can choose from a pre-defined list of names of support teams. Those support teams can create dashboards showing only unresolved issues that match the value of their team in this select list.

When using a group picker field, you need to start typing the name of the group to show corresponding results. It will always list ALL groups in your Jira instance, which may turn out to be a hassle. The benefit of using a group picker is that you can notify the members of the group whenever a ticket is transferred to them.

This was exactly what I needed. Thank you @Dave Mathijs 

But I got to know that there is no group association with project. I can see hundreds of groups on the picker which doesn't serve the purpose. Disappointed as this seemed basic to me. Anyways, upvoted the idea for filter on groups.
