How can I bulk grant users to a role within a project

I think it could be achieved with script. Do you have script runner app installed?

I do, I have looking into that one. thanks

Agreed with the above, for the bulk add, a script would probably be best. Script Runner, Power scripts, jiraCLI or even just working with the API directly.

Once the users are added, a project admin can add/remove users to the roles within thier project, so that part is covered,

I know I can bulk add to a user group and then add the group to the project role, but then that leaves me with the task of maintaining those users. I want to leave that with the project admin. I do not want a project admin to have the ability to add to a group.
