Group Creation without Admin Rights

We have chosen to utilize a Group Picker to populate a Custom Field used in our JIRA On Premises implementation.

As the JIRA admin, I get on average 5 - 6 requests per weeks to add new groups to JIRA.

What I am looking for is a way to enable a select set of power users to add new groups without giving them full JIRA Administration rights (for obvious reasons...)...

Does anyone have a solution (either via script, Add On, or other means) that you would be willing to share?

Thanks in advance!

We pull a subset of our Active Directory groups into Jira, and have a separate service that allows people to modify groups they own. It works ok.

Hi Matt -

Thanks for the quick reply.  Are all of the groups in Active Directory?  Or are the groups that our owned by others internal (which is the use case I'm addressing).
