I recently ran into an odd situation where I add a couple new user groups, the 21st and 22nd group, and wanted to add those groups to a project permission scheme. The group names were not visible in the drop down list box (DDLB). At the top of the DDLB the text says "showing 20 of 22 matching groups". JIRA does not allow me to select nor reduce the list by entering text to find these newly entered groups.
I have to go out and delete a few groups to be able to select the groups that I want to set permissions with.
Same issue here (v7.3.2) as we have over a 100 groups and the drop down only lists 20. Typing the first characters to search the groups seems a bit buggy.. I eventually found the group I needed by trying different characters that appear in the group name (not just the leading character). Good luck.
TIL: If you have spaces in your group name, it won't show in the drop down. If you create a new group name with no spaces (I used a - to separate words), it shows in the dropdown. This is probably listed somewhere in creating a group documentation, but I just happened to notice the difference in naming convention and tried it out, and it worked.
