You need a role:  lets call it 'project-doorman'.  You need to ensure 
that a user has that role on the specified project when calling any 
functions that add a role to a user;

For V2 that is managed by OS_KS_ADM  which can be found in 


Things are a little neater in V3.

You will need to have a rule in the policy file for add_role_to_user  
that enforces  role:project-doorman
