Allow a user edit all issues created by a specific group of users

I have some users and they are all in a group "System consultant". I have a user whose job is to check issues created by this group of users. This user need to editi issues created by this group of users only, not those issues created by others. Is it possible to do this in JIRA? Thank you.

I think that you can do it adding a group custom field or a user custom field which you set to the group of this user or set the user when creating issue by this group. and in the project permission scheme, in the edit permession put your group custom field or user custom field

Hi Zezeto,

Thank you for the response.

I am not sure if I understand you correctly. Your answer seems to be the solution of filtering users who have permission to edit all issues. But the question is about permission for a user to edit a filtered set of issues.

the easiest way to achieve that is to write a custom postfunction (as a part of plugin as a groovy script postfucntion that will check if user is inside a certain group, and if yes - save that group in hidden group field.

And your permission scheme can be updated for that group with "group custom field" as the permission actor

Hi George,

Thanks for your response.

Your suggestion involves coding. Can I do this as we use onDemand?

No, you can't use the script runner plugin on OnDemand, and you can't upload the type of plugin this sort of coding approach requires.
