Hi @Ahmed Maher ,

You cannot assign one issue to multiple assignees but you could manage them using Team field or a custom field User Picker (multiple users) or Group Picker (single group or multiple groups).
There is a very similar question here:

Hi @Ahmed Maher ,


Jira doesn't support multiple assignee. 


you can achieve this by various other options like,

  1. Split the task in to multiple subtasks.
  2. Assigning the ticket do DL (Distribution list).
  3. Creating multiuser picker ..etc.

Refer below link for some  other options provided by @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_

Hi @Ahmed Maher

This is not possible for the assignee field. One option is to create a multi user picker custom field instead.
