If you are using SOAP, you need to use the SOAP url and send an XML request in the post body, you cant put the group name in the URL (that I am aware of).  If you are using REST, then you can put the group name in the URL.


See these samples:


Here is a SOAP call:


Depending on how the service is deployed at your school (I don’t have access to the URL you sent me), you would connect to this URL:


And send something like this in the HTTP post body:


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="">


    <ns1:getMembersLite xmlns:ns1="">


      <ns1:groupName> uc:org:nsit:webservices:members</ns1:groupName>



      <ns1:actAsSubjectId> </ns1:actAsSubjectId>










And it should return the members…

Greetings grouper developers:


I'm using a grouper client embedded in uPortal 3.1.1.  The client is using the SOAP interface to do calls to the grouper web service but the service is returning errors.  I think the issue may be that I am not formatting the url properly for the query but I can't seem to decode the correct format from the documentation so I want to ask here for help. 


The service is running at


I'm attempting to get the listing of members from a group with id uc:org:nsit:webservices:members


I'm constructing the query as show below but am getting the following error




"The service cannot be found for the endpoint reference (EPR) /web/services/groups/uc:org:nsit:webservices:members"


Does someone here know if the URL format is correct or if I should be querying the SOAP interface in a different way?


Thanks for your input and advice
