Bulk add permissions in Bamboo

I have a need for an auditor group to be able to see all events within Bamboo, but I don't want them to be able to change anything (or affect anything, including firing off a build, for example).  That's easily done via creating a "read-only" like group and grant that group visibility within the Build and Deployment Plans.

However, we're several years and dozens of projects in to Bamboo (each project has, on average, 4 plans), and each build plan has on average 3 deployment environments associated with it.  Rather than killing my finger clicking constantly through each project, then each plan, then for each plan 3 deployment environments, etc, is there a way to bulk add (not replace) permissions on the given project?  The text in the "bulk permissions updater" suggest that it will wipe whatever permissions currently exist for each Build Plan, and replace it with what I'm about to set, but that seems absolutely not what I want to do.  I simply want to add those permissions.

Note that I didn't see anything in the REST API docs that can change permissions:

Try using Database or API.


Database table name os :  ACL_OBJECT_IDENTITY

Right - I should have said that I didn't see anything in the REST api docs that did this.

That is correct .. There is no best way to add global permission for all plan.  There is open feature add request:
