Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {PROJECT-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 project. It does not create new users and add them to a project. By default, users first receive an invitation to the project. You can add users directly to a project only if you set the mms.user.bypassInviteForExistingUsers setting to true.

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

POST /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/users

PROJECT-ID

Description

boolean
Optional
Flag indicating whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format.
false
envelope
boolean

Flag that indicates whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

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 project, their existing roles are overwritten with the specified permissions.
