How do I can allow a specific group of users to create issues?

I need to allow a specific "group of users" to create issues and I also need to allow to a "specific user" assign an issue previously assigned to him, to other group of users.

On the first one, use the permission scheme as standard.  I'd recommend saying "create issue = role of X in the permissions" and then putting your group into the role in the project.

The second one needs code, because there's no way to tie a permission (like "assign issue") to a user based on the fact that they were once an assignee.  I'd code a scripted field that listed all previous assignees, that would fix it.

The third thing is "you cannot assign an issue to a group", so I assume you mean "the person to assign it to must be part of another group"

Thank you, you were very helpful.

By the way, do you know about a plugin ttha alllow doin the second thing?

You can try ScriptRunner perhaps?
