Is it possible to have two or more assignees, if for example you practice pair programming?
We have the problem, that if two work on one card, only one person is the assignee of the issue. And if you look in Jira it seems that the other person is not working on any issue.
Along the lines of Jobin's answer we have multiple user picker fields, each holds a different person who contributed to the feature at a different point in it's lifecycle.
It also means you can automatically assign issues via the workflow. e.g. if it fails testing, it gets re-assigned to the developer. You could easily have two developer fields. You can also gather the user information via transition screens in your workflow, so you have to name a UAT tester to enter UAT. This value is assigned to UAT Tester and also copied to the assignee field
Not out of the box. But a common workaround is to use a new user picker (or multi user picker) custom field named "Pair programmer(s)" or something and use that also in the reports/gadgets and filters.
You can also include the new field in notifications.
Assignee will still be a single person.
