Chris, is there a way to do this if the API was used instead of web services? Just curious.

I don't think findGroups can find based on membership, only by group
attribute. I think you want to use getGroups, though limiting by stem is 1.6+

Apologies if this is a FAQ or is obvious. I couldn't find it. Using the webservice, I want to call findGroups on one subject, starting at a particular stem. This is what I tried:



and several variations on the URL, which obviously don't work. Find Groups page <> has this to say:

"For AND|OR|MINUS you can link up multiple queries into one"

which is what led me to believe this was possible in the first place.

GetMemberships (1.6.x only!) is more explicit about it <>:

"Can filter for all memberships directly in a stem, or in any substem of a stem"

Is there any way to do the same with findGroups in 1.4 or 1.5?
