Can I create groups in my project

I have looked in the documentation, but there was no mention of setting up different groups in a project.  We used Version One before in our organization.  Is there a way I could create groups in my project and assign people to those particular groups.


Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi @Subha Chaganty

What are you looking to use these groups for?

There are groups (sort of) in the form of roles, which are used as part of permissions. Is this what you're referring to - or are you looking to group users together and assign a "group" to an issue?

Hello @Subha Chaganty 

I'm afraid that's not possible, you can create a mail group and assign the issue to that mail group.

But you can try this workaround using a custom field

We divide the issue into sub-tasks and add watchers to the issue.

Hi @Subha Chaganty 


Groups that a project-specific are called project roles. 

However, project roles are mostly used for permissions or notifications. 

You cannot assign a project role or group to a ticket.
