Condition to create a new user group via REST API

Junya Fujiyoshi shared this question 16 months ago

When a user group is created from Administration console, group member is a required field; meaning cannot create a member-empty user group.

Likewise, when a User Group is created via webservice, as described in CREATEGROUP part of the below Wiki page, group member is a required field.

Meanwhile, when a user group is created via REST API, group member is NOT a required filed as described in ReDoc, and a member-empty group can be created.

However, once this group is opened from GUI, cannot save without adding a member.

Considering the above factors, member-empty group can be created only via REST API, while it is not possible from GUI or via webservice

Is this by design?

Detail steps are described in attached.

Hi Junya,

I hope you're doing well.

I can ask Peter Damen for you with regards to these design-type questions, but you might receive a faster response by contacting him directly. He'll likely know a bit more as to why this works in the way it does. His email is

Kind regards,



Thank you Chris,

I will directly reach out to Peter via Teams chat!




No worries Junya!
