if you are looking up a group to use as a subject, you need to use subjectLookup J


in addMember the wsGroupLookup is the group to add the subjects to


You can yes, for subject source id you can use “g:gsa”, and for subjectId you can use the UUID or for subjectIdentifier you can use the group system name… ok? J


I would like the non lite one and pass in the body of the call a bunch of subject lookups…


Like this sample:


PUT /grouper-ws/servicesRest/v2_2_000/groups/aStem%3AaGroup/members HTTP/1.1

I'm using Grouper web services to add several groups as members of another group.  I'm using addMember, but I couldn't use its wsGroupLookup because it appears to support adding only one group at a time.

I noticed that I can specify the group names (e.g. path:to:group:one, path:to:group:two, etc.) as the values for subjectLookups / subjectLookup / subjectIdentifier.  Is this a supported way of doing this?   Prior to this, I was making an extra call to fetch the UUIDs of the groups, then passing those as the values for subjectLookups / subjectLookup / subjectId when calling addMember.  I just want to make sure that I'm not using an unintended side effect.
