We have a huge JIRA database with hundreds of projects and hundreds of groups. Every time a new member joins the organisation , JIRA admins have to add or remove them from certain groups and it is adding a lot of admin overhead.
How can we delegate this responsibility to end-users or say Project admins?
I know there is no out of box solution for this. But i want to know if anyone knows any plugin or any workaround for the core problem i am facing.
We use groups we manage issue level security in a project.
The project roles defined is visible globally (by all projects). Which means if i have 40 customers, and i define a role with all 40 customers, then all those 40 customers will know each other. A situation i want to avoid for security reasons. With groups i was able to achieve this, how do i avoid this issue with project roles,
You can use JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) actions for this kind of administration. If you have Confluence, How to set up a self service CLI page for Administrators together with How to allow users to import JIRA issues from Excel or CSV shows techniques for how you can construct a self-service page that can do specific restricted actions you authorize.
If you need to empower users and delegate group management to a set of selected users, I've recently published a plugin which might help! It's a brand new plugin so I'm really interested in feedback to give orientations to my roadmap!
You can try it out here, I'll be more than happy to improve it to suit more needs: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.caritteprod.group-ambassadors/server/overview
