Does Jira Cloud support nested groups

Looking for a way to do nested groups in JIRA Cloud.  The last question I saw (and the answer was no) was from Jan 2015.  I'm hoping a couple years of thought and development might have made this possible.

No Change.  JIRA itself doesn't support them either - there's just a tweak in the directory stuff that flattens them out when they're used in external directories.

Is there a supported plugin that will allow this?

No, because you can't do it in an add-on.  The group and user handling is part of the core functions.
