Can I add a group to another group as group member?

I have 2 groups, Manager and Directors. I want to create a 3rd group, Approvers exactly with members of Managers and Directors. Can I add Managers and Directors to the Approvers group as group "members"?

Hi,

No, Confluence itself cannot deal with nested groups.

However, if you connect Confluence to Active Directory (LDAP), and manage the groups in AD, you can use nested groups within AD. The nested groups can be resolved by Confluence properly.

See docs here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/managing-nested-groups-229838455.html

No, you can't.

In this case, you should use Roles, create a new "Approvers" roles and assign these two groups to it. then you can assign users of this role to specific permission or condition or user custom field values..

Unfortunately not.

If there are hundreds of users in Managers and Directors group then i would recommend using the CLI plugin for it.

You can get the list of users from this command 

jira --action getUserList --group "testgroup2" --outputFormat 2


And you can add users to the 3rd group with thiscommand

jira --action addUserToGroupWithFile --file "src/itest/resources/addUserToGroupWithFile.csv" --autoGroup
