Hi, i believe i have seen a similar question on the forum, but is there any way to assign a QA lead for a component (in addition the the component lead). We would like to be able to have QA contacts (similar to bugzilla) so that once a bug is fixed, the QA contact will be responsible for verifying that bug. We can do this to some degree with a custom field, but there is no way to assign a QA contact to all bugs for a given component.
Are there any built-in tools or plugins that can help solve this?
No. Components are a simple list, with component leads added. There's no other data stored with them.
I've seen a plugin that attempted to add some form of component based fields on top of the lead, but it was an old Jira, and I can't find it in the marketplace, so it may have stopped being supported/developed
You can try out the JIRA Component Watcher plugin. It let's you add additional users and/or groups to the components which then will be notified as any regular watcher.
It won't give you the opportunity to notifiy on a specific events though.
However, I know that the developer has been working on a new version including a field type in which the components watchers can be stored automatically for each individual issue and in this case also accesible to your notification schemes.
This should probably solve your issue. Contact the developer and check what the status is for this new feature.
