I have some issues that multiple people work on at the same time, am I able to assign this one issue to multiple people? Would I have to create multiple instances of the same issue to assign it.
You have multiple options
1- Create subtasks for each of people in the task
2- Create a multi-user picker custom field and use it for these cases
3- Break down the main issue into two separate and related issue and assign each one separately
The order of my list is my preference for these situations.
No i'm not advocating any solution specifically for pair programming with TDD. I did not read that into Samantha's post. Admittedly, that underlying detail might apply here but it is just as likely that it does not.
What I was attempting to convey was:
It is worth mentioning that you can certainly get around 'assigning an issue to a team/group', but (again IMO) it is messy and error prone.
Regarding your last question, we are not using pair programming w/ TDD at my workplace thus any answer I give would lack experience so will abstain. However, you might find this Community article of interest - Managing-Assignee-when-you-do-Pair-Programming
