How can I grant a group of auditors read access to multiple project areas in RTC without having to add them one at a time to each project area?

I looked into using Access Groups e.g. an 'Auditor' access group. However, access groups can not be added to the Project Area Access List. I think you have to either open up the project for read access for all users, or add the auditors individually.

I would suggest to file an enhancement request.

Keeping my comments above in mind, it would probably be possible to write a small Plain Java client Libraries tool, that adds (and later removes) a small number of people to the project or the access list. http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/deploying-templates-and-creating-projects-using-the-plain-java-clients-library/ shows how to add users as members. I don't have code for the access list right now.

If this is a common requirement, why not having a list of anonymous auditor users available in the access lists and then provide the auditors with the current password?
