Pair programming

Jira has a core principle that there is one single assignee so there can never be any confusion.  Atlassian have no plans to change that.

If you want to represent both people in a pair, add a field for the other person.

Do how do Atlassian's devs use the tool? Do they not pair?

I understand they do do pair-programming at times.  And have a field for "other person in pair alongside owner"
