We've created a self-service web app to allow departments on campus to request their own folder in one of our stems. After we approve it, the app creates the folder via Grouper WS. Ideally, we'd like not just the requester but any person they choose to have full control over any subfolders or groups they create.

It looks like rules might be a good way to implement this, but would we have to create a separate rule for each request, along the lines of "this specific admin group gets admin rights on everything in the requested folder and below? Or is it possible to create a more generic rule, like this:

"Any group named DeptAdmins has admin rights to its parent folder (the folder created for the requesting dept) and any group or folder below that folder"
