I am looking for a solution that allows normal level (non-admin) users to manage there own groups.
I have a time tracking plugin that can filter on users in a JIRA group so I'm looking for a way to allow each team leader to own and manage only their teams group. Does anyone know of a way to achive this?
You can find a solution by writing a simple SOAP client..
The Client can internally run with the credentials of an administrator, for updating the groups.
Nevertheless, you can also authenticate the user, and also check if he belongs to some project roles, and then proceed with the updation of the group membership.
In Outlook/ Active Directory , you have Distribution List or groups which can be owned by the groups owner.
Note: If you are using LDAP then you can synch up Active Directory Groups with JIRA groups - refer https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Connecting+to+an+LDAP+Directory
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
