Nested Groups in JIRA Cloud


My company is currently evaluating a possible move to cloud from server and one of the things that we need to retain is the ability to nest groups. Is that possible in cloud? I don't see it in the administration or any documentation around it. If anyone could clarify this for me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Hi Alexandra,

Currently, Jira Cloud does not have the Nested Group feature.
We had a feature request suggesting this, but it was closed as "Won't do".
For now, there are no plans to implement this.

If you have any other question, please let us know.


While that is extremely disappointing, I do appreciate the quick and definitive response. Thanks.

You are always welcome Alexandra!


Nested groups does dramatically reduce the need to manage individual group memberships and therefore reduces the probability of errors. From my point of view, this decision makes the Atlassian Cloud less secure.
