Is it possible to automactically assign contacts to a civi-group by membership subscription?

Then when membership expired or remove contacts will be remove from that group?

We need it for our joomla website so we can assign user to a joomla group by this plugin here https://github.com/lcdservices/CiviCRM-Group-Sync (we tried using civi-authenticate plugin for joomla, but thats dont work properly)

We are struggling, so will appreciate any help.

Thanks Julash

    Whats stopping you using smart groups? They should refresh automatically based on the search criteria used? Commented Dec 2, 2015 at 8:57

in principe you could do that with the CiviRules extension (which you can get from https://civicrm.org/extensions/civirules). With this extension you can set up a trigger 'new membership' (or possibly a change of membership status?), add a condition for the specific membership type if required and add an action to automatically add the contact to a group. There is a cookbook on CiviRules on the Wiki documentation: http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/CiviRules+Cookbook
