How can I allow a user or a group to transition an issue regardless of assignee?

This sounds like you have either an issue with

  1. the permission scheme in particular the transition permission

You should check both of these to see where your restriction is in place.

You could add a condition on user group: edit workflow => coditions => add conditon => user in group. More information you can see here https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/jira-administrator-s-guide-100303111.html
