Looking for solution to a filter question

Looking to find a way to 1) share filters with and 2) search for all issues logged by [long list of people] without using jira user groups. 
The group members will likely change pretty often and the person (PM) that would need to add/remove people is not system admin. 

I thought about maybe creating a dummy project ('foo') with the PM as the project admin and he can add / remove users to the project as needed.  He could then share filters and dashboards with this project users and all would be well.  The other use case he has is that he wants to be able to filter bugs logged by [all these people]. I can't seem to find a way in JQL to run a filter for issues logged by [project users].   The membersof() seems to only search jira user groups. 

Can anyone come up with a way to do this that solves both use cases (without jira user groups)?

Hi Katie,

The dummy project would work for the first scenario. 

But it's not going to work for the second one. That can only be done with a list of individual users or using a group with the membersof() function. 

thanks.. that's what i'm seeing. I guess I'm going to have to create the new user group for them.
