How to define new search templates in Jira?

I am a little bit suprised that I wasn't able to find any information regarding how someone can define a new search template for Jira.

In my case I want to change the search template for a group-pick custom field, so it will list only few groups instead of all groups from Jira, for example groups belonging to another group.

What do you mean by "search template"? The only thing I can think of is the .vm that defines what a user sees when you write a "searcher"?

Yep, I assumed there was a place in the UI where I can define new search templates. It wasn't clear that this functionality can be extended only via a plugin. Thanks.

He refers to the templates that are used by the custom fields, "search templates", I'd also like to know how to customize it.

Um, repeating the phrase does not help us understand the meaning. Do you mean the .vm files that are used to generate a page for the user? As they're called templates. Or the searcher type? Or something else?
