Is it possible to add a group to another group? For example, we have a group called GroupA and would like to create GroupB that contains all the members of GroupA plus UserOne, UserTwo and UserThree. If somebody is added/removed from GroupA, then they should automatically be added/removed from GroupB based on his membership in GroupA.
I tested this in my lab by setting or internal JIRA directory to use nested groups. I then created a new group, Super Group, and via the "Edit Nested Group Members" screen added two other groups with one member in each. When I view the group in the list of all groups, it shows it has 0 members. Shouldn't it show 2? I then added a single user to Super Group via the "Bulk Edit Group Members" screen and now it shows 1 member in the group list instead of 3.
It wouldn't explicitly add the users from the nested groups in to the parent group. But the permissions will be using the nesting. Did you check by granting permission to the parent group and see if the nested users are getting that permission?
Started from scratch and created three groups: NestedGroupOne - userOne added NestedGroupTwo - userTwo added SuperGroup - userThree added and both nested groups addded Created a test permission scheme where all permissions were set to SuperGroup. Created a test project and set to use test permission scheme. userOne (added to NestedGroupOne) cannot view/work on test project. userThree (added to SuperGroup directly) can. I don't know how to view which permissions userOne has. When I view the profile, all I can see is the list of Groups.
