The getGroups used by WS is part of the Member class. If you start with a member object, you can call:


-          member.getGroups()

-          member.getEffectiveGroups()

-          member.getImmediateGroups()


And there are versions of these with more parameters, so you can query on privileges instead of membership, or even more complex queries.


If you have a group, the member is group.toMember()


If you have a subject, you can use MemberFinder.findBySubject(session, subject, false).

thanks very much !

That's the web service -- is there a corresponding method in the core (java) API ?

We have two different sets of programs, and need to know about both APIs.

    I'm assuming there's a way to do this ... using the ADMIN GUI, and
    looking at a group, I can click "View entity details" and can request

      Show groups where this entity is an DIRECT member
      Show groups where this entity is an INDIRECT member
      Show all groups where this entity is a member (DIRECT or INDIRECT)

    I thought that getMemberships might do this, but it looks like it
    returns info about the members of a group.

    Is there a Web Service that provides this functionality ?

    Is that a method in the core API that provides this functionality ?

    thanks !
