You would just manually create a new user and set the DL email address as the email. Individual JIRA users would need to access the ticket with their own accounts. JIRA does not support assigning issues to a group.

Hi, 

I have done the same but the people in the DL are not getting any email notifications however when other valid users are getting notifications.

 

example @ABC - user ABC gets notification when commented like this

however DL_AtoZ - no user in the DL get any mail notification
