is it possible to assign a group to be Component Lead?

I think not, but is it a feature request somewhere? Does anyone know?

My predicament is this: we have a project for smaller tasks, for tasks that do not take more than 30 man-hours to complete. we assign these issues by components, so someone who is the component lead of component A gets that type assigned to him, and so on. The thing is that 2 of us developers handle one of these components in tandem, but only one of us receives the notifications that a new issue has been created with that component. This means that if the component lead has to indididually assign the issues between the two.

Is there any way to fire off a notification to a specified group when an issue is created WITH a certain component set? Jira seems to think this by the project level, wich is nice, but we don't want to create new projects willy nilly. We have enough of those as it is!

Is there anything like this that the cloud service supports?

See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-15273. Also https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-1397 for another relates issue.

Btw, seems like you can create a group picker custom field and fire notifications to that!

Another workaround would be to create a mailing group including two of you, use that group mailid and create a user in Jira and make that user as the component lead. This will result in both of you receiving the emails as per the component selected while creating the issue.
