You can use the Project Groups Plugin to categorize projects and filter and search by the groups by using the ProjectGroup axis. Install it via Admin -> Plugins

After talking to Lee and understanding his prior usage of the software, we've figured out a workaround that approximates the prior usage of groups as groupings of projects rather than permissions.
The thing that filter by group gives you is the ability to see several projects in one filter. We solve that problem by adding the prior group name to the name of the project, and using the Search For capability to make a filter that returns multiple projects.
For instance, here's a set of groups with their projects:
- Coke: Bottle, Open, Drink
- Pizza: Deliver, Slice, Eat
Previously, you filters would look something like this:
Filter: All cases that are active associated with Pizza
To get this functionality back, you simply add the group name to the project name. Here's my new list of projects:
- Bottle (Coke)
- Deliver (Pizza)
- Drink (Coke)
- Eat (Pizza)
- Open (Coke)
- Slice (Pizza)
To get a list of active cases, you add a search to a filter to look like this:
Filter: All cases that are active containing Project:Coke
This gives you the exact same list of cases the previous groups-based filter gave you. Plus, it's a bit easier to administer and a bit more visible.
