Way to transfer all users in a project to a group

Users in project roles change pretty often and we have groups for each project.

Trying to find a faster way to update the groups when people leave and enter project roles instead of going in and manually doing it.

Scrip, plugin, anything? Would save me a lot of time

I'm not aware of any possibility to do this. What you can do it's use another point of view.

Create 'Generic' groups in roles i.e. 'project1-dev', 'project1-admin' and everytime you have to add or remove someone from a project just add or remove from the group. Of course it's not very practical and have it's complications but it's a possibility...

Hope this helps.

Yup... That's the same thing I was thinking...

The issue with this is a Project's admin can't manage groups. They can only manage roles. So if they want to add or remove someone, they can't

Or delegate your group management to an outside LDAP (the company one) and manage the memberships there.
