Manage Queue Members as a VisualForce page – is it possible?

Due to recent security restrictions, our organization would like to remove the (very powerful) “Customize Application” permission from our operations users; however, these users actively manage our Queues for leads.

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a VisualForce / Apex Controller customization that would allow a user WITHOUT the “Customize Application” permission to manage Queue membership? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Method 1

This seems to be possible. I just performed this simple test as a user without that permission without any problems, so if I understand the question correctly I think the answer is yes.


<apex:page controller="TestQueueMembership">

    <apex:messages />

    <apex:form >
        <apex:commandButton value="Test" action="{!toggle}"/>



public class TestQueueMembership
    public PageReference toggle()
        List<GroupMember> groups = [select Id from GroupMember where Group.Type = 'Queue' and GroupId = '00Gb0000000RFBC' and UserOrGroupId = '005b0000000TPaL'];
        if( !groups.isEmpty() )
            delete groups;        
            ApexPages.addMessage( new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.INFO, 'Removed user from Queue') );
            insert new GroupMember( GroupId = '00Gb0000000RFBC', UserOrGroupId = '005b0000000TPaL' ); 
            ApexPages.addMessage( new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.INFO, 'Added user to Queue') );

        return null;
