JQL search for what groups the currentUser is in

We have a requirement where we need to create a dashboard showing users issues that their team is working on.  This would be easy with the membersOf function, but we may not know the group name, as those could be updated via the active directory integration.

Is there an easy way to do this, or do we have to just create dashboards for each group (such as Dev Team 1) and the users would manually have to set those are their primary, and toggle between the boards they need.

This is not normally done by groups, but by roles. And yes, a dashboard per project is not a bad idea. 

Even if you had a query that said "show all issues for my current groups", because you would be in jira-users, it would show everything.

Thanks.  excluding global groups was going to be my next question.
