I have a tomcat 8 installation on an ubuntu 14 server.
I want to give write access to the /opt/tomcat/webapps folder to a few users so they can scp .war files directly there from their local machines.
Is there any best practice for this?

if you're working with developers, setup a Jenkins to build their source codes, and setup jenkins to handle the deployment.
Jenkins can work with shell so you can use
scp, so you can control permission of jenkins without granting any permission for developers to server.
