I am working in a team practicing XP. Part of this practice involves heavily utilizing pair programming, in fact we pair by default on the majority of tasks.
Currently JIRA only allows assigning a task to a single user. This means JIRA does not work well for us.
There are proposed work-arounds to create a custom field allowing to select multiple users, but this doesn't integrate with a wide range of JIRA features.
Our current solution is to just @tag each developer in the description, this prevents us from using filters etc.
We need to be able to assign both developers in a pair to a task, so later in review we can accurately see who worked on what, and if revisiting the issue in the future (e.g. a regression occured), developers can easily know who to contact if they need more information.
If this feature isn't implemented then we will likely seek an alternative solution that better suits our XP workflow. We would prefer if we could stick with JIRA to utilize the extensive integrations though.
