On a typical user picker field there is the 'Select a user(s)' button when choosing the user which brings up a page where I can view all users by group and then pick the correct user.
Why is there no 'Select a user(s)' button for the Assignee?
I need this functionality for the Assignee field, so people can choose the assignee based on the group. Is it possible to can add that button for the assignee field?
I would create a custom field to use instead of the assignee field, but I still need the functionality to assign the assignee to the component lead if a component is chosen. Otherwise, I want people to see a 'Select a user(s)' type list to choose the Assignee.
Unfortunately, this is currently not possible in JIRA.
There is a feature request open for this though:
https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-7889- Custom flag in JIRA administration as to whether the assignee field is a drop down or a user picker
I would recommend you to vote on that feature to increase its visibility with our developers.
