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

We have cross org participants, and creating a dummy email address for all isn't possible. It would be great to get group level notifications.

  • Go to MORE in toolbar top in Jira.
  • Select PEOPLE.
  • 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 team mates in a message you no need to mention them Individually. You can mention/tag the team name so every one in the team who accepted the invitation link will get the notification.

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

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

This does not answer the OP's question.

This would be an excellent feature request for JIRA.
