Hi AshaCR, 

Some thoughts,

  • Multiple assignee option is not possible in JIRA at a same time 
  • If you want,you can create new custom user picker field, which can be used as assignee2 and manage the notifications 
  • Or else, you can go with Sub-task by partitioning the main task into two/more and assigning to different assignee

Here are the few documents related to it ,

Hope this helps you  !

Hello @AshaCR ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!!

As @YogeshKR mentioned Jira doesn't support multiple assignee field by default. but you can create many as you want user picker custom field in Jira and add it to required screens, issue type etc.
