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?
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.
The Team solution creates a private group by default. A user can see the teams they belong to, but cannot see members of any other teams. Nor can they ask to be invited to the Team. It works if you have a dedicated project manager managing the Team, and even then only for small Teams but not otherwise. It is pretty useless for us. We do not have the bandwidth to manage the Teams, nor do the Team leads have the bandwidth to do so.
Go to MORE in toolbar top in Jira.
In this page you can see Start A Team icon. Click that
You are set now! Who all team mates you invite and if they accept your invite will be activated.
And in future, if you want to mention/tag your teammates in a message you no need to mention them Individually. You can mention/tag the team name so everyone in the team who accepted the invitation link will get the notification.
Hello @Michal Blazejczyk
There is a Plugin for Jira Server, which allows each user to create your own mention-groups and mention this group at one time. Maybe this might help.
Hi @Henric Johansson ,
While it's not possible to mention a group in Jira, it's possible to mention a team. This does not answer your exact use case, but might be of help.
