In Jira, can I use @group to notify all people in that group in a comment?

If I for instance like to have the attention of people in the group "qa" it would be good if I can write that instead of all the names individually. Can this be done or is there a plugin for this?

Hi Henric.

As far as I know it's not possible with the current JIRA releases: you can not mention @all (all participants / watchers) or @group (all people in the given group) in the JIRA.

As for a plugin - I'm not aware of any either. You could browse the Atlassian Marketplace. Some vendors or just enthusiasts could have implemented this.

Cheers, Ignat.

I did browse it, and could not find it, that's why I asked here. Planned use is to say notify all members of QA by writing @qa if I have such a group. Or @pm, or @team-1. I will go ahead and request such a feature in Jira, will post back here with the issue key.

I have created this jira ticket: JRA-35055

You can add the group type for the Issue Commented event Issue in the notification schema.

Hi!

Did I get your point correctly, all comments to the issues would be broadcasted to a single group?

This would be an excellent feature request for JIRA.
