Default "Everyone" / "Authenticated Users" group for all users
|Category:||Accounts / authentication|

It would be nice to have access to a default "Everyone" group to be able to quickly assign all users to a role on a project.
In the setup I'm using, I have a "Help Desk" project set up that I want all active members to be able to create issues in. I can't give "Add Issue" permissions to the non-member role though, because I don't want non-members of other projects to add issues to those other projects. I've created an "Everyone" group and given that group permissions on the project, however I have to remember to add new users to that group when activating the account.

Scenario: lots of users signing up to get access to a specific project. If all new users end up in a group such as "Registered", I could either include the project in that group, or quickly find all the users involved and make them members of that project. Currently, there is no other way to find users than to look at them all, sort on creation date, and figure out which ones were new since last time I looked.

Another approach could be considering non-member not as a implicit role rather then implicit user to whom role could be assigned on per-project basis. Migration/backward compatibility: grant non-member user a non-member role in each project.
(This is essentially the same Rocco Stanzione suggested)

Possibly this could work based on automatic group membership for new users (including self-registered users and LDAP authenticated users). Any group(s) could be set as automatically receiving new users from specific registration methods. Permission on projects can be assigned per group as normal.
Scenario: New users authenticate with one LDAP realm and should automatically belong to a group that grants permission to access a particular project.
Potentially, new users from a different LDAP realm could automatically be assigned to a different group with access to a different particular project.
