So I am just wondering if there is any way to make a filter that shows all the issues and the assignees and the groups that the assignees are in.
for example, let's say I have users and custom groups called:
User: A group:1
User: B group:2
User: C group:3
and I want to see the result screen something like this:
Issue Name| Assignee | Group
Issue1 | A | 1
Issue2 | B | 2
Issue3 | C | 3
or it can be backward:
Group| Assignee | Issue
1 | A | Issue 1
2 | B | Issue 2
3 | C | Issue 3

Unfortunately, Jira does not have a system field that provides the groups related to the assignee of an issue, however, you could use a group picker custom field (Multiple choices) to add that information to the issues. To achieve that, you would need to implement the following steps:
For the current issues you have:
1 - Create and add to your project screens a group picker custom field (Multiple choices)
2 - Identify all the groups added to each assignee
3 - Create filters displaying the issues for each assignee
4 - Use the bulk operation functionality to add the same groups to all the issues returned for each filter, selecting the groups you identified for each assignee in step 1
For the new issues created for now on:
You could use a third-party app (Like Automation for Jira) to automatically add the groups depending on the assignee selected in your issues.
P.S: The automation rule and bulk operation must be updated in case new groups are added to any users, so the system-admin would be the required person to configure the settings above.
Let us know in case you have any questions.
