Email custom group

After creating a custom filter for issues, I want to subscribe a group of people to receive the report.  JIRA only allows me to select from predefined AD groups, but I would like to enter a list of user names. Is this possible?

What you can do is create a "generic" account with a distribution list as its email address. You may then add this as a "WATCHER" to your issues.

I thought of that, but I am trying to avoid burning JIRA licenses just to notify a custom subset of existing team(s) the status of ISSUES. 

 

Is there a way to find who is notified of these emails in the DB and update who is emailed by hacking that email address? Maybe there is an add-on that I haven't found?

The Notification Scheme can be updated with the following, which includes GROUP. Current Assignee Reporter Current User Project Lead Component Lead Single User Group Project Role Single Email Address

If I look at the list of ISSUES, then go to Manage Filters, I want to subscribe a custom email group, not myself, or a JIRA groups, to receive these emails. It looks like this isn't possible,unless I am overlooking it. The Notification Scheme, won't allow a filter to subscribe to it... it's hacky but I could create a new JIRA Group with just the email alias to send the email too, but this could cause future confusion.

That's what I suggested. Create a generic account with an email alias and use that account based on your needs. We are using it and I know some other teams that have that setup too.
