RestAPI: Add userGroup members not working

Using the following POST method via PowerShell:

https://localhost/api/v5/userGroupMemberships/{userGroupId}/addMembers

 

I set the body as 

 

$UPN=@()
$UPN+="Julian.Loveday@mydomain.com"

#// Add to User Group
$Body = @{
'UserName'=$UPN
}
$JSON=$Body | ConvertTo-Json
$UserGroup=Invoke-RestMethod "https://ema.mydomain.com/api/latest/userGroupMemberships/$EMAUserGroupId/addMembers" -Headers $headers -Body $JSON -Method Post

 

however I see this error every time:

Jools86_0-1675255813244.png

 

I tried changing to

$UserGroup=Invoke-RestMethod "https://ema.mlp.com/api/latest/userGroupMemberships/$($EMAUserGroupId)/addMembers" -Headers $headers -Body $JSON -Method Post

 

and even changing to

$UserGroup=Invoke-RestMethod "https://ema.mlp.com/api/latest/userGroupMemberships/1/addMembers" -Headers $headers -Body $JSON -Method Post

 

Could you either:

a) Confirm there is a BUG in the RestAPI for adding members

or b) Send me an example if I am getting the syntax wrong.

 

As an FYI, token generates fine (code to generate headers below) - and I can run most other RestAPI queries using the below, its this specific one (https://localhost/api/v5/userGroupMemberships/{userGroupId}/addMembers) that is broken.

 

#// Generate token to be passed for authorization with each RestAPI request
$Token=Invoke-RestMethod "https://mydomain.mlp.com/api/latest/accessTokens/getUsingWindowsCredentials" -Credential $Cred

#// Generate header including token for each API request
$headers = @{
'authorization' = "bearer $($Token.access_token)"
}

Hello Jools86,


Thank you so much for your patience.


After analyzing your request, we have come to the conclusion that this is not a bug, but a syntax issue. It looks like you are attempting to use an array $UPN=@()

 

Swagger syntax calls for the UPN to be a call for a "string"... "UserName": "string"

 

If you remove the array and turn it into a string it should work fine:


#Example

$UPN="Julian.Loveday@mydomain.com"

#// Add to User Group

$Body = @{

'UserName'=$UPN

}

$JSON=$Body | ConvertTo-Json

Write-Host $JSON

 

the output will look like as opposed to nothing in an array

{

  "UserName": "Julian.Loveday@mydomain.com"
