In One Project, I need to be able to have teams based on roles or groups in order o have different assignee list for each team leader?

Can this happen? and how? I'm not talking about issue visibility, Im talking about who can see which user when assigning the issue.

I am guessing that you are talking about JIRA here. If so, it is not possible out of the box. You either need to create a new custom field type or manipulate the assignee list based on the logged in user using some Javascript. In the latter case, it wouldn't work for buk edit but it would be easier to achieve.

what about developing a custom plugin instead of javascript ? is this possible?

thanks.. option 2 is a work arround and acceptable in my case, but how, any body did this or did something same?

I have wrote something similar yesterday for security level here. The concept is same.

Writing a new custom field type using a plugin is more foolproof. Again, you can find some details here.

:) Really thanks Mr.Jobin, I will check this, I might ask further details soon.

Actually I reached a solution using Security Levels within project roles, I can now have the issue set by one super user who will distribute issues by selecting proper security level. but still the assignee list is the ghost here :), I will try to develop a custom list that will render based on current assignee (current user) security level/role and disable the original assignee list of JIRA what do you think Jobin? Your feedback please.

You will have to honor the 'Assignable User' and 'Assign' permissions. You will also need to replace the 'Assign' operations on an issue as well as the gadgets that use the standard assignee field. The field will still appear in JQL causing confusion!

In short, it isn't an easy choice because the Assignee field is used in lot of places. Disabling it system-wide isn't an option! But if you can live with the above, then it is fine ;)

I tried to use components to make some sort of units, but I could not reach my goal.
