Using JIRA Role-based Tracking & Estimation, can I point the roles at a Jira group?

I want to include all the users in our "Engineering" JIRA group in all of the definitions of the roles. Possible?

  1. Log in as a project administrator and open your project. 
  2. Select  > Users and roles.

  3. You'll see all users and groups associated with each project role. 
  4. To add users or groups to a project role, select Add users to a role in the top right corner. Enter the users or groups and select the project role you wish to add them to. (Here add the Engineering JIRA group)

thanks, Noam. I was over-thinking things and not realizing that the Role-based Estimations plugin just leveraged the standard JIRA roles.
