Thanks for bringing up the issue. This is a bug. User U2 is a pipeline 
group admin for other pipeline groups (other than group with pipeline X). 
While group admin U2 has permissions to create a new template, U2 must not 
be able to extract a template from pipelines that U2 does not have access 
to. Can you please log a bug in https://github.com/gocd/gocd/issues ? 

A workaround as you mentioned would be to make user U1 a template admin for 
the newly created template so that U1 can at least edit the configured 
stages and jobs in the template. 

Thank you,
