Add Existing Users to One Group

Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

This resource adds users who exist in Ops Manager to another group. It does not create new users and add them to a group.

Base URL: https://{OPSMANAGER-HOST}:{PORT}/api/public/v1.0

Resource

envelope

Example Request

curl --user "{username}:{apiKey}" --digest \

 --request POST "https://{opsManagerHost}:{port}/api/public/v1.0/groups/{GROUP-ID}/users?pretty=true" \
 --data '
 [
   {
     "id": "{USER-ID}",
     "roles": [{
       "roleName": "GROUP_OWNER"
     }]
   }
 ]'

Note

You must send an array of entities, even if adding a single user. For each user that you wish to add, specify the user ID and the roles the user should possess. For role values, see the description of the roles.roleName field in the users resource.

If you specify a user that is already a member of the group, their existing roles are overwritten with the specified permissions.
