Hi, I got it working:

1 - add groups_id field to ir.actions.server model:

class ir_actions_server(osv.osv):
    _name = 'ir.actions.server'
    _inherit = 'ir.actions.server'

    _columns = {
        'groups_id': fields.many2many('res.groups', 'res_groups_ir_actions_server_rel', 'uid', 'gid', 'Groups'),

2 - then add that field in the ir.actions.server form view:

<record id="view_ir_actions_server_form" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">ir.actions.server.form</field>
            <field name="model">ir.actions.server</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="base.view_server_action_form" />
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <xpath expr="//notebook" position="inside">
                    <page string="Security">
                        <field name="groups_id" />

3 - then add a record rule to limit each user to see only those actions whose groups are defined for his user groups:

<record id="ir_actions_server_groups_id_rule" model="ir.rule">
            <field name="name">User can only see ir.actions.server if she belongs to its group (if defined)</field>
            <field ref="model_ir_actions_server" name="model_id"/>
            <field name="domain_force">['|', ('groups_id', '=', False), ('groups_id', 'in', [g.id for g in user.groups_id])]</field>
